Interact was founded by Executive Director Jeanne Calvit in 1996, and was housed in the Warehouse District of downtown Minneapolis for 18 years. Calvit is an accomplished actress and director herself, a graduate of the Lecoq School of Theatre in Paris and a veteran of acting on stages across Europe for more than a decade.
Calvit was trained in a type of acting called physical theatre, which is how the performing artists work at Interact. The actors on stage have a strong sense of physical presence, emphasized with hand gestures and body language. They are a combination of artists with and without disabilities, from mainstream and marginalized communities, whose stories and life experiences drive their ensemble-generated work. The artists start with improvisation, trial and error. Even within that final form, every performance is slightly different - keeping the work fresh and alive.
Calvit and the other staff are excited about their new space in the Midway neighborhood. While they miss the "buzz" of downtown Minneapolis, the tradeoff has been well worth it. The search for this space was difficult but, according to Calvit, "we knew we would thrive here as soon as saw it.
"Clients and staff alike come here and stay for a very long time," Calvit said.

"I'll have some stories and pictures," says Calvit, who returned from Thailand last week.
Calvit thinks she's seeing positive signs that long-term collaboration with Thai artists could become a reality: "I stayed longer this time and I feel like I made good contacts. The last five years that we've been going, we'd do a performance and, the day after, we'd pack up and leave. So I haven't been able to network there. But there's obviously a huge amount of interest and we have a track record, so I'm optimistic about finding the money."
Those needs are likely to come up as Leming, Calvit, Kling and others meet with visitors at the free event Wednesday, while munching on snacks provided by Amazing Thailand.
