Pangaea is a sound and visual journey through the universe of the brothers Grimm in which the stage becomes an imaginary museum of curious objects, through sounds heard in headphones. The objects refer to the imagery of fantastic tales, such as the forest full of traps, the black magic of the crystal ball or the spells of the bad witch. In this trip, accompanied by two researchers, we will discover the point of view of the objects that illustrate the stories. For this we will have to follow the clues, as did Hansel and Gretel with the crumbs left in the way, so that they can return home.

Pangaea is a show for young audiences that brings together various languages such as theatre, dance and the visual arts on the stage, thus recovering the idea of the Sixteenth Century Curiosity Enclosures that brought together rare objects and artefacts from biology, becoming the precursors of Museums of art. The collection presented here has fictional outlines: 4 tables and 200 objects representing each story.
