Kyoung’s Pacific Beat is a peacemaking theater company based in Brooklyn, New York, which promotes a culture of peace through the production of new works of theater written and directed by Kyoung H. Park. In collaboration with artists from different cultures and disciplines, KPB rigorously explores sources of violence and engages local communities in the creation of its work, to develop an empathetic understanding of underrepresented perspectives, while creatively dismantling systems of oppression. Radically experimenting with form, KPB transforms personal and communal experiences of oppression into challenging new works of theater that align with non- violent struggles for peace and social justice, to serve as a model for how art can be an agent of liberation.
