An interactive theatrical showcase, the re:ACT Festival celebrates the strength of advocacy from empowered youths.
re:ACT addresses a wide range of topics from mental health to misogyny. We harness the power of theatre to showcase the different strategies that our youth take to make a positive change in their society.
Our performances are interactive, inviting the audience to be an active agent of change. The audience is given opportunities to step onto the stage, role-play as characters and experiment solutions to the conflict presented. This ‘dialogue-through-action’ encourages participants to think critically and serves as a rehearsal for real-life.
We do it to:
-To express today’s challenges authentically through story-telling
-To design an experience that is out of the box
-To create innovative theatre.
PAST RE:ACT FESTIVALS
Since 2016, re:ACT has been a catalyst between charities and youth, between cause and action. re:ACT empowers youths to explore current day social issues through emerging forms of interactive theatre and technology.
Our platform serves as a creative space for this journey of self-discovery and collaborative learning, presenting theatre as a vehicle for advocacy, championing the need for change.
More recently, we began developing a digital skin to hold this creative process. Using the online space, 2017 saw us working with Cambodia where stories of youth are shared across borders, performed live in Steung Meanchey Phnom Penh, watched by audiences worldwide.
But more than a performance exchange, re:ACT aims to bridge global narratives, provide agency to vocalise and enact change, and to share impactful youth theatre.
