In this 4 hour workshop, you’ll learn specific techniques for helping actors to access their vulnerability in a dramatic context, resulting in powerful chemistry between characters without compromising personal boundaries.
Focus is on subtle and specific details in choreography, and on acting exercises to keep partners connected physically and emotionally. The work is an exploration of vulnerability within a dramatic context for the purpose of telling the story of the scene. We’ll also touch on suggestions for Best Practices, the foundational Intimacy Pillars, addressing permission vs. consent, psychological safety, and minimum working conditions. Exercises include “instant chemistry and comfort” and “asking for consent”, as well as a brief discussion on how to approach choreographing moments of intimacy.
