Intimacy For The Stage – Performers
Friday, February 16 from 10:00AM – 5:00PM in the Westbury Theatre
In this workshop, you’ll learn specific techniques for accessing your vulnerability in a dramatic context, resulting in powerful chemistry between characters without compromising personal boundaries. It’s an exploration of intimacy within a dramatic context for the purpose of telling the story of the scene. The principles can include the intimacy between lovers, between parents and children, between dear friends, and can also apply to scenes of sexual violence. Discussion topics include: consent, boundaries, psychological safety, best practices and working conditions.
