ActNow Theatre creates youth led, socially conscious theatre projects. Working from our base in Adelaide, we collaborate with young people and community groups to create projects that are innovative, informed, inspiring and often confronting - but never conventional.
Our projects have been critically acclaimed, commended in South Australian Parliament, and highly praised by audiences, participants and community organisations.
ActNow has created a range of performances on challenging, contemporary issues such as:
Expect Respect! (Interactive performance about the legal implications of sexual assault), Speak Out (Interactive theatre addressing homophobia), The Clock (Performance about the science of ageing) and Responding to Racism (an interactive performance addressing racism in the community).
What a great job you did!.. Very important work and my students benefited greatly.

Congratulations all. It is a really great show and we haven't stopped talking/thinking about it because there is so much to think about.

Thanks for doing what you are doing, it's fantastic to see people trying to open people's minds to these situations.

Amazing actors! They really did do a great job and showed us who to recognise and how to act in certain situations involving homophobia. Thank you again.
