PANGAEA ARTS is proud to present

상자 SANGJA (Boxes)

In colllaboration with renowned Korean puppetry & physical theatre troupe ArtStage SAN.

 

PHYSICAL THEATRE MEETS PUPPETRY IN A THEATRICAL COLLABORATION BETWEEN CANADA AND SOUTH KOREA.

SANGJA takes the audience on a remarkable journey from Korea to Canada, and all of the imaginative places in-between. We follow a boy as he strives to find his unique place in the world and come to terms with the incredible loss of his birth family, language and culture, while navigating the tension that occurs when families (and people) don’t fit within our cultural expectations.

Featuring two renowned theatre companies from South Korea and Canada, this play is a dynamic blend of physical theatre, breathtaking puppetry, an extraordinary musical score, and theatrical elements from East and West. SANGJA explores identity, race, cultural diversity and conformity, non-traditional families, international adoption, and the boxes we put people in.
