Interactive Theatre Programs

Putting a spotlight on the human dynamics that matter

since 1993

 

What is Interactive Theatre?

DeValk Associates Interactive Theatre combines state-of-the-art human dynamics content with the drama of live theatre. Since 1993, DeValk Associates Interactive Theatre has proven effective in a wide array of industries, and around the US and internationally.

 

DeValk Associates programs include training vignettes custom-designed to reflect the unique organizational culture of the client.  The vignettes are portrayed by actor-trainers who have worked in a variety of industries and represent a breadth of professions.  Vignettes are followed by highly interactive discussions led by experienced facilitators who help participants explore the issues, and how the issues  impact individuals, teamwork and productivity.  During the discussions, actor-trainers remain in character so participants can problem solve and practice skills in the safety of the classroom.  DeValk Associates transforms the classroom into a living laboratory where participants can safely examine complex and difficult workplace issues, by seeing and doing, rather than just discussing.
