Pangea World Theater begins from the fundamental paradigm of multiplicity in the world. Since its inception, Pangea has continually redefined theater creation by exploring literature that crosses boundaries and traditions and by engaging in an inter-cultural and interdisciplinary process that delves into the urgent themes of our time.  


All of our programs are presented in conjunction with community-based activities that include workshops, Open Ensembles, discussions, and outreach to schools. These events set our works in their social, historical, and cultural contexts and provide an important link between the artists and the wider community.
