With education and community-building as core company values, PCC recognizes the power of artistic expression to foster joy, empathy, and a deeper understanding of self and others. Our learning, training, and community-engagement programs are rooted in the methodologies of Undesirable Elements - PCC’s long-running series of interview-based theater works that invite local community members on stage to share their own stories of identity, place, and belonging. In K-12 schools, universities, senior centers, and a variety of community settings, we offer tools for dialogue and connection, and create supportive spaces for artistic skill-building and joyful discovery with youth, elders, cultural workers, community members, artists, and arts educators who seek to deepen and expand their practice.
