Introduction to Intimacy Workshop

In this workshop, participants learn specific techniques for accessing their vulnerability in a dramatic context, resulting in powerful chemistry between characters without compromising personal boundaries. Focus is on subtle and specific details in choreography, and on acting exercises to keep partners connected physically and emotionally.  It is an exploration of intimacy within a dramatic context for the purpose of telling the story of the scene. This class also touches on how to approach preparing for scenes of intimacy in rehearsal, consent, boundaries, your rights, and psychological safety. This is not just kissing or sex scenes. The principles can include the intimacy between parents and children, between dear friends, and can also apply to scenes of sexual violence.
