The Kentucky Center Presents
STUART PIMSLER DANCE & THEATER
Saturday, January 23, 8 p.m.
The Kentucky Center, Bomhard Theater
501 W. Main Street, Louisville 40202
Stuart Pimsler Dance & Theater is an internationally recognized contemporary dance company based in Minneapolis.
The evening will include the world premiere of a new work by Pimsler titled Bohemian Grove, which takes its title from the campground in Northern California where leaders of wealth and power from around the world have gathered for over 100 years. Through a montage of statuesque movement, animal imagery, and probing monologues, Bohemian Grove provides a searing glimpse into the world of the “superclass.”
SPDT’s work has been presented at The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Dance Theater Workshop (NYC), Jacob’s Pillow, and The American Dance Festival, among many others.
SPDT’s community inclusive work, which engages a diverse array of groups - students, caregivers, audiences, and community members - has been lauded as a “National Model” by The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, and its Arts & Healthcare work has been recognized for “Best Practices” by the National Endowment for the Arts.
