Visiting Your Campus/Organization

“interACT performed at our annual new member conference, Greek 101, for the first time this year. What an incredible experience! The students enjoyed the personalized nature of the performance. Hearing the message from their peers, in an interactive venue, made the subject much more relatable.”         Caitlin Roberts, M.A.
Assistant Director Student Life and Development
Fraternity/Sorority Advisor

 

We frequently get requests to travel to universities and conferences throughout the United States. We have been as far west as Hawaii, as east as Washington D.C., and many states in between. We are an excellent fit for any campus event focusing on sexual assault prevention/domestic abuse. Due to the fact that sexual assaults are more likely to involve athletes and members of the Greek system (fraternities and sororities), our message is especially useful with members of these populations. In addition, we frequently perform during college student orientations because the research indicates that women are most vulnerable during their first year at a university. Our performance on homophobia and bullying address many of the problems that are in the media today. We provide an exciting, experiential alternative to didactic keynote speeches at conferences, and have established a reputation for deeply engaging audience members. Our performances are a wonderful way to set the tone for a conference or convention. We have performed for audiences as small as ten, and as large as 1,400. Our goal is to exceed your expectations! To book interACT, please contact Kirkland Productions.

In 2010-11, we began training students at the host university to perform with us on stage. This lowers the costs associated with bringing us to your campus, and allows your students to assume a leadership role. We have also started working with students and faculty to develop their own troupes based on the interACT model.

We require airfare, accommodations (typically three rooms per night) ground transportation and a stipend for each performance/workshop. Our performances are usually 60-75 minutes in length followed by discussion, powerpoint and questions with the audience. We can also offer workshops on specific issues or Theatre of the Oppressed techniques when we visit. Since we receive travel funds from our university, we may be able to defray costs by paying for all or part of the travel expenses. Some of the locations we have visited include:
