​Class Description:

Ever had to do a stage kiss? Ever had to direct a suggestive or even explicit scene? Intimacy direction is all about making rehearsals and performances of those scenes less weird! Think of it as fight choreography, but for kissing and physical touch. With intimacy direction, directors get what they want, and actors know what’s coming. At this workshop, we’ll talk about how to communicate boundaries, what to do if something is crossing those boundaries, how to create a safe and supportive atmosphere, and why it’s all so important. Whether you’re an actor, director, stage manager, producer, or teacher, this workshop will give you some practical tools to discuss, stage, rehearse, and perform intimate scenes in ways that are respectful and professional. Because your boundaries are perfect, exactly where they are. NOTE: Workshop attendees can choose whether they would like to observe or participate in the exercises. There will be no nudity, kissing, or simulated sex acts performed during the workshop.


Instructor Bio:
