National Institute for Directing & Ensemble Creation
Pangea World Theater and Art2Action collaborate to bring you The National Institute for Directing and Ensemble Creation! This groundbreaking Institute provides a unique experience for theatre artists to collaborate and share methodologies of directing and ensemble creation in an environment with special emphasis on non-Western techniques and social justice.
The Institute is committed to supporting the professional development and exchange among artists of color, LGBTQ2+ and women directors.
Updates on a virtual 2020 Directing Institute coming soon!
