Offered to actors, this 2-day intensive, led by Intimacy Director’s International (IDI) and Intimacy Directors and Coordinators (IDC) certified Intimacy Directors Samantha Kaufman and Alexis Black, explores the foundational work and implementations of theatrical intimacy for the stage. Areas of focus include techniques for advocacy such as communication and consent, as well as techniques for choreography, performer training and dynamics, protocols for safe execution and spaces, and best practices for dynamic storytelling. This workshop will dive deeply into the craft and artistry of Intimacy Direction and help establish IDI’s 5-pillar method as a standard of practice in the theatre. Participants should be prepared to participate in exercises from the perspective of actors. Touching (handshakes, handholding, hugging) through guided contact improv is part of the course. Kissing is not required. While the goal is to explore emotional and physical intimacy, the core concept of this work is Safety, for the facilitation of safe exploration. All touching is consensual, and participants are always invited to sit out and watch, should they feel uncomfortable or triggered.
