Pangea World Theater creates and presents international multi-disciplinary theater.
Pangea World Theater illuminates the human condition, celebrates cultural differences, and promotes human rights by creating and presenting international, multi-disciplinary theater.
Throughout our work, we employ a cross-ethnic vision of tolerance and human rights through excellence in the arts.
Pangea World Theater commissions and produces original works and fresh perspectives of classics. Using an ensemble based approach to all the work, Pangea explores and creates literature that crosses boundaries and traditions. Pangea's work includes new immigrant communities exploring new aesthetic realities for a more diverse audience.
Pangea has presented more than 25 local, national, and international performances in the last 15 years. The artists and performances bring fresh perspective to our work and new ideas to our theater. All the artists we present engage with our community through residencies, workshops, master classes and dialogues.
The Indigenous Voices Series was created by Pangea World Theater and is co-presented annually by Intermedia Arts. Indigenous Voices explores issues in the indigenous agenda, focusing not only on internal details but also the wider global and national contexts through the medium of theater and performance art.
In this series, local, national, and international artists raise issues that affect their community-issues of identity, rights, struggles, and experiences. Featured artists have included Native Americans James Luna, Bently Spang, Marcus Amerman, Heid Erdrich, Sterlin Harjo, and Keo Woolford; Niuean-Samoan Dianna Fuemana; Native Canadian Margo Kane; and Tasmanian aboriginal Tammy Anderson. The series has included youth workshops, poetry slams and a global indigenous summit featuring speakers from across the world.
Alternate Visions Festival:
Deconstructing boundaries between artists and audiences during the artistic development process, the Alternate Visions Festival presents readings, works-in-progress, and world premieres. This aesthetically diverse array of new works demonstrates the transformation of our culture.
Diverse Stages brings youth together to create their own works and discover their own aesthetics. We provide a safe space for difficult conversations to occur. We partner with schools in Minneapolis and St. Paul to create original works around diversity difference, bring teaching artists to schools and communities, and bring middle school and high school students to our performances for our Emily Anne Tuttle matinee series and discussions about the issues addressed in our work.
