Kyoung's Pacific Beat

    Kyoung's Pacific Beat is a peacemaking theater company.


    Kyoung’s Pacific Beat (KPB) 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. The company develops its work over the course of multiple years, in collaboration with artists from different cultures and disciplines. Through research and engagement with local communities, KPB explores experiences of oppression and transforms the collected stories through radical experimentations with form. Its goal is to give voice to marginalized perspectives in society and bring together like-minded individuals that believe peace matters.

    Since its founding in 2011, KPB has produced DISORIENTED (“Kyoung’s most intensely personal play”—American Theatre Magazine), TALA (Time Out Critic’s Pick), and PILLOWTALK (“very much of this moment”—The New York Times). KPB is led by Kyoung H. Park, the first Korean playwright from Latin America to be produced and published in the U.S. and a 2010 UNESCO Aschberg-Laureate.
