What is Interactive Theater?
A Short play requiring problem solving (written mostly by people with mental health issues) is performed first without interruption or solving any issues presented. When repeated, volunteers from the audience stop scenes, replace a character and act out potential solutions. Discussion follows each intervention.
A project of Act for Action – Theater for All, From the Inside Out explores issues of mental health through interactive theater and participatory workshops. This performance is made possible due to the generous support of the Regional Arts and Culture Council, the Mental Health Action Group at the First Unitarian Church of Portland and individual donors.
