Between the Seas aims at promoting the representation and understanding of Mediterranean identity and culture in North America. Its mission is to:
-familiarize North American audiences, with the latest developments in the performing arts from the participating Mediterranean countries.
-explore, through artistic creation and scholarly discussion, Mediterranean culture, its commonalities and divergences and envision the potential of a polyphonic, hybrid, interconnected Mediterranean identity that resists homogenizing or polarizing interpretations.
-give the opportunity to emergent artists from the Mediterranean and the Mediterranean Diaspora to articulate their voice and present their work in an international event, encouraging artistic exchange and debate and bridging Mediterranean culture and its diaspora.
-bridge the fields of research and performance practice on topics of Mediterranean culture, history and identity.
