As I continue to train in Intimacy Direction, I strive to create consent-based spaces in rehearsal rooms and classrooms through the use of boundary practices, self-care tools, and desexualizing language surrounding Intimacy Choreography. These guiding practices empower actors by giving them tools to create healthy boundaries, closure practices, and ways to advocate for themselves in the creative process.
When choreographing scenes of intimacy, I aim to honor the actors’ impulses and the director’s vision within the stated boundaries of the actors. Collaboratively we can create choreography that is deeply embodied, dynamic, and repeatable. Imbedding these consent-based practices into our process and industry allows for exploration and powerful storytelling without draining the overall health and passion of the artists who portray it.
