Matinee is a dance/theater/film adaptation of American novelist Robert Coover’s New Yorker short story of the same name, by SPDT Artistic Co-Directors Stuart Pimsler and Suzanne Costello in collaboration with filmmaker Andrew Welken. In it, films-within-films-within-films collide as performers search for connection and romance moving effortlessly through the stage and screen. This work features SPDT Company Artists Suzanne Costello, Brian Evans, Katherine Griffis, Heather Klopchin, Kari Mosel, Jesse Neumann-Peterson, and Scott Stafford.

"Matinee' is a multimedia export that Pimsler can be proud of."

"Between Coover's words and Pimsler's interpretation of them (from page to stage to screen) we find ourselves caught up and even lost for a moment, before being released back into our day-to-day lives. Once returned, we begin to plot our next escape."
