Interact Theater and Gallery present:
April 25 - May 18, 2013
By The Seat of Our Pants
Interact’s newest high-octane production bubbles with hijinx, non-sequiturs, clowning and commedia. Or…what you get when you mix up Honey Boo Boo, Downton Abbey, Fox & Friends and MORE. You’ll even recognize a few of TV’s finest in this wildly comedic romp, stomp, tweet and post through pop culture. And of course, we couldn’t leave out some of the hottest political issues of the day. An original production that’s as wonderfully wacky as we are!

For an exclusive preview, read an interview with By the Seat of Our Pants co-directors Jeanne
Calvit and Taous Khazem, in which they openly discuss the rehearsal process and
"We decided to make fun of the kind of people I hang out with: you know, the New Age, macrobiotic, anti-fracking activists."
"A couple of our guys were really offended because they’ve been taught that the words “retardation” or “retarded” are as bad as the N-word."
"Then Dennis Rodman went to North Korea and Kim Jong Un said
he loved the Chicago Bulls but also, he’d love to bomb Austin, Texas. And it was
like our comedy was writing itself."
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.
