Interact Theater seeks non-AEA SM for July 2019 Production

Interact Center for the Visual and Performing Arts is a non-profit arts organization offering full-time creative practice at the professional level to adults with disabilities. Since 1996, Interact’s mission to create art that challenges perceptions of disability has redefined who is included in the artistic process. Interact Theater’s entourage of 40+ actors with disabilities creates all original work, sustains rigorous professional standards, and explores ideas through the lens of the entire spectrum of disability labels. Our uncompromising vision of radical inclusion dissolves concepts of who “can” or “cannot,” blending the talents and viewpoints of artists with and without disabilities, and artists from mainstream and marginalized communities.
