Close Act is renown with interactive street theatre. Their unique form of theatre is performed in between and above the public. "Let us impel you, draw you and carry you into the world we create".

What does it mean; interactive theatre? It's most comparable to reality whereby the most important thing is the emotional rush you get.

In these performances you can feel all kinds of emotions, like love, seduction, fear or compassion, it's the ultimate way to intensify your perception of the performance. The story, how unreal it may seem, becomes reality. You are part of it just like all others around you.
