Pangea World Theater’s program- Lake Street Arts!- Circling utilizes an experienced and expansive Creative Placekeeping approach that interrogates gentrification and siloing of struggles while centering the histories, stories and present day realities and dreams of Dakota, Ojibwe, Latinx, Asian, Immigrant, Black and East African communities along Lake Street and through out Minneapolis and the greater Twin Cities.
The Twin Cities continues to be at the center of a country wide reckoning around racism, policing, anti-Blackness and anti-Indigenous violence and structural oppression. Pangea World Theater’s Lake Street Arts!- Circling will use story circles, poetry, community conversations, site specific theater to deepen our engagement with the communities we work within to create both a space for histories to be gathered and visions for a more just, sustainable and livable society to emerge. We affirm the only world we want is a world worthy of All Black Lives! A world worthy of All Children! Join us.
