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.

Our Process:  Our stories are co-created in a collaborative environment. All stories are told extemporaneously — No notes! No memorized scripts!

Listener Discretion Advised:  Portland Story Theater's stories may contain explicit language, assorted escapades of a questionable nature, and various examples of extremely poor judgment, along with profound insights, deep revelations, and moments of truth, triumph, and transformation.
