interACT Performance Troupe
‘‘The entire experience was highly beneficial and I hope more commands make use of this opportunity in the future. You and your team provided us with outstanding training and an entertaining educational experience on the myriad ways in which we can help prevent an assault.” – Lieutenant Commander David Taft, U.S. Navy
interACT is a nationally renowned social justice performance troupe based out of California State University, Long Beach. Since its birth in 2000, the troupe has reached thousands of audience members through its “proactive” (highest level of audience involvement) shows. During performances audience members are literally invited on stage to become active participants, rather than passive observers. The performances allow audience members a safe space to rehearse assertive communication strategies and inspire social and political change.
Our programs have been proven effective in multiple quantitative, qualitative, and longitudinal published studies. We have performed throughout the country on college campuses, naval bases, and for academic conferences.
