Interacting Theatre

Interacting holds classes for people with disabilities across Auckland - Drama, Hip Hop and Film Making.

Our visions are:

  • Provide members of disabled communities with opportunities to tell
    stories through collective participation in the performing arts

  •  Organise and develop drama workshops and to promote other
    performing arts including but not limited to dance, music and

  • Train people to run workshops for children and adults with special
    needs within the community especially focusing on training people
    from within the Maori and Pacific Island communities.

  • Establish an ensemble theatre company of people with special needs
    to present plays and productions throughout the community.

  • Promote the use of drama therapy and involvement in theatre of
    people with special needs

Interacting also organises the InterACT Disability Arts Festival which is a 3 day festival that gathers people from all over Auckland together. The festival celebrates people with disabilities and what they can do. There is a stage for performances (any performance, poetry reading,music, dance, circus acts, mimes, kapa hakas and drama), an art exhibition, workshops, a mini market - there's something for everyone! Anyone with or associated with disabilities participate and anyone who is interested can come!
