Interact Theater presented a work-in-progress

Ship of Fools

June 12 - June 28, 2014

Directed by Kyle Cadotte and Matt Trucano

of the Chicago-based theater company The Bricklayers


Based on the fifteen-century allegory by Sebastian Brant, Interact’s Ship of Fools considers the foolishness of high-society and the brilliance of the underdog – all in the topsy-turvy language and style of mask theater. Come aboard as the Interact artists with and without disabilities play alongside The Bricklayers in this hilarious voyage into humanity’s quirks and treasures!

about interact theater

Interact Theater produces two original, fully staged theater productions each year, created and performed by the entire company; along with more informal works-in-process that attract a wide, eclectic audience; and a season of shorter works designed for special events such as school shows, industry events, and conferences. Our ensemble-generated creation and developmental process means that artists with disabilities fully participate in conceiving new work, developing the original material, writing scripts, and incorporating everyone's ideas through improvisation and other ensemble-building techniques. All artists are paid for their performance work. Collaborating with major guest artists such as Kevin Kling, Larry Yazzie, J. Otis Powell! and others, Interact Theater artists with disabilities have become an integral part of the Twin Cities and regional arts community.

Interact has produced over two dozen original, ensemble-created plays. Following are glimpses of our work.
