interACT Performance Troupe
‘‘We have found that the truly interactive nature of the presentation is the most effective way to educate the resident assistants and residence directors on the most appropriate approach to handling cases of sexual assault and domestic violence.” – Elson Browne, Associate Director, CSULB Residential Housing
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 shows have been proven effective in multiple quantitative, qualitative, and longitudinal published studies. We continue to perform throughout the country on college campuses, and community locations such as juvenile detention facilities, domestic abuse shelters, housing projects, and academic conferences.
