Anything But English

Pangea World Theater co-present’s Patrick’s Cabaret’s "Anything but English" – a multilingual cabaret featuring artists whose native language is “Anything but English."

In this multilingual cabaret, we invite performers to explore what happens in a multilingual space where the connections formed between people are forced to move beyond mere words.
