Interactive theatre is a presentational or theatrical form or work that breaks the “fourth wall” that traditionally separates the performer from the audience both physically and verbally. Interactive Theater is not made for only entertainment, it is often produced to illustrate real-life political and moral debates. Interactive theater allows the audience to becomes completely immersed as participating actors and the spectator to become the primary reason for the production. The audience is given the opportunity to become the main characters on the stage, and can also interact with the actors.
E3kes is an interactive stage show for youth and kids that discusses sexual harassment, using the frame of video games. The audience plays with Samah’s avatar and can stop the scenes once there is harassment.
This show aims to raise awareness on sexual harassment for youth and children.
