SPDT has continued to engage populations worldwide through its performance works and community inclusive programs since its founding in New York City in 1979. Artistic Co-Directors Suzanne Costello and Stuart Pimsler and their company of compelling artists continue to garner critical acclaim for their “theater for the heart & mind.” SPDT’s interdisciplinary vision weaves movement, spoken text, song, and visual imagery that comments on the personal and political.

Based in Minneapolis since 2000, SPDT has toured to Europe, Israel, Taiwan, Russia, Canada, Bermuda, China, and Mexico. In the U.S., SPDT has appeared in more than 35 states. The company also tours extensively throughout Minnesota, with major support from the Minnesota State Arts Board.

SPDT has been a leader in Arts & Education programs and at the forefront of the Arts & Health field since introducing its signature program Caring for the Caregiver in 1992.  SPDT’s Community Connections programs have been cited as a “National Model” by The Kennedy Center and recognized for “Best Practices” by the National Endowment for the Arts.
