Pangea World Theater illuminates the human condition, celebrates cultural differences, and promotes human rights by creating and presenting international, multi-disciplinary theater. Since 1995, Pangea has worked to create and present new possibilities and new aesthetic realities for an increasingly diverse audience. The artistic direction evolves out of relevant shifts in the social, cultural, and political pulse of the communities in which we live and work.
