Intimacy in Performance Intensive
A three-day intensive study of Intimacy forStage and Screen by the founders of Intimacy Directors International. During this intensive you’ll get an overview ofnumerous aspects of this work. We encourage all roles in the profession (actors, directors, stage managers, etc) to attend.
In this intensive, you’ll explore specific acting techniques and exercises to access this subtle and specific work. “Intimacy” in a performance context evokes images of kissingand sexual acts. But the term “Intimacy” also refers to thecloseness between dear friends, family, old enemies, and addressed during scenes of sexual violence. Details in choreography keep you connected to your scene partners, both emotionally and physically while respecting personal boundaries. A portion of each day will bedevoted to scene work where actor-participants can practice the rehearsal process, and director-participants can observe how these specialists approach this material.
