Theatre Ontario is proud to present our third presentation of the Intimacy for the Stage for Directors workshop

January 13, 2018.
401 Richmond Street West, Suite 350

Learn the techniques and the language to stage human sexuality in a way that is professional, dynamic and focused on storytelling. Whether you're a director or stage manager, you've probably been confronted with an intimate scene and you know how difficult they can be to stage comfortably. This 4 hour workshop is designed to give you the tools you need to handle these moments respectfully, safely and with confidence. Learn the language and standards for staging intimacy that should be followed from rehearsal into performances, just like fight choreography.

The focus is on subtle and specific details in choreography for the purpose of telling the story of the scene. Contact improvisation is used as well as breath and eye contact to keep partners connected physically and emotionally.

Siobhan Richardson's Workshops on Intimacy for the Stage have been enthusiastically received as a practice which empowers actors to respect their own boundaries, while improving the quality and clarity of scenes of intimacy. Intimacy For The Stage workshops and the assistance of an Intimacy Director/Choreographer creates better storytelling, and is an important step forwards in supporting actors’ safety and rights.

Siobhan Richardson is an Intimacy Director, co-founder of Intimacy Directors International Intimacy Directors International and of Canadian Intimacy for Stage and Screen and one of two people in Canada recognized as an Intimacy Director by Tonia Sina, founder of the Intimacy For The Stage method. Siobhan is quickly building an impressive resume in this field, including several directing and teaching credits across Canada, Europe, and the USA.
