In the face of increasingly polarizing voices and politics, a call has been raised to reunite Pangea, the supercontinent that began to break apart around 200 million years ago. This sincere yet impossible manifesto strives to cease war, hunger, and abuse of natural resources by mending the tectonic lines that separate us.
“Reunite Pangea!” may be a corner of internet irony – stickers, petitions, memes, and t-shirts – yet it is also an invitation for us to reimagine what is hopelessly and humanly optimistic. The scale of the idea, so huge and laughably unattainable, becomes something much more potent and inspiring when taken on a human to human level. How can we move closer together, bridge what divides us, contain multiple viewpoints in a discussion, or even accept the hypocrisies that exist inside each of us as individuals?
In this evening we delve into different creative worlds, and allow them to inhabit one space. We invite you, the audience, to view each piece as its own continent, imbued with its own culture, customs, and climate. They inevitably develop in their own directions but are cut out of a greater whole.
