PANGEA WORLD THEATER, Minneapolis, Minnesota, received a two-year grant of $32,000 in support of the participation of emerging playwrights in Alternate Visions. The mission of Pangea World Theater is to illuminate the human condition, celebrate cultural differences, and promote human rights by creating and presenting international, multidisciplinary theater. Jerome funding will assist Pangea in developing new works by providing participating emerging artists with dramaturgy, workshops, and public readings to prepare their performances for mainstage productions. Pangea hosts discussions between artists and audiences and facilitates public dialogues on issues raised in each of the plays. Over the course of two years, five emerging Minnesota artists will receive Jerome support.
