Founded in 1995 by Dipankar Mukherjee and Meena Natarajan, Pangea World Theater’s mission is to build a just world by creating multi-disciplinary theater that embodies decolonizing practices of solidarity, sustainability, and equity. With a deep commitment to nurturing artists of color, Pangea’s theater performances and arts-based community engagements transcend borders, bringing audiences together at the intersection of politics, art, and human rights to explore the relevant, often divisive themes of our times.

Pangea seeks to build a destination that will be a place to gather and learn.
