Before Amundsen, before Scott, before Shackleton, there was Fridtjof Nansen, the great Norwegian, the Father of polar travel, the one who showed them all how it could be done. Adventurer. Scientist. Explorer. Humanitaran. Nansen, who made the first ever crossing of Greenland on ski. Nansen, who locked his ship in the Arctic ice and tried to drift over the Pole. Nansen, who famously said that it is better to go skiing and think about God than it is to go to church and think about skiing. Join us in January, 2017, for a brand new installment in the Armchair Adventurer series: Nansen of the North.

This show will be part of the city-wide Fertile Ground theater festival.

Wheelchair accessible.

    As a amateur story-teller, it’d be a great to hear a professional tell his stories!

    “It is better to go skiing and think about God than it is to go to church and think about skiing.” Yes. My partner just said that’s the most thoughtful sentiment he’s heard in a long time. And it is better to win tickets than to purchase them. Either way, Howard will be just as wonderful!
