InterACT is a nationally renowned social justice performance troupe based at California State University, Long Beach. The interACT troupe presents complicated, realistic scenes about domestic violence and sexual assault. During the performances, audience members will be invited on stage to become active participants, rather than passive observers. The performances create a safe space for students to rehearse assertive communication strategies and inspire social and political change with the actor-educators.
Since 2000, interACT has provided sexual assault intervention education for thousands of audience members at programs for universities, juvenile detention facilities, housing projects, after-school programs, and drug/alcohol rehabilitation centers around the United States.
