Taught by IDI Lead Instructors, Dan Granke and Rachel Flesher, this workshop will explore the foundations of theatrical intimacy for the stage as well as practical methodologies for implementing the work in artistic spaces.
This intensive training will delve into the craft and artistry of Intimacy Direction. It will offer tools and language for advocacy, which will include how to enhance communication and utilize consent to cultivate safer and braver spaces. Participants will also engage with techniques for choreography and in a discussion of safety and best practices, including IDI’s five pillar method, which are being established as standards within the theatre industry.
This workshop is open to any and all in the theatre, including performers, directors, stage managers, movement choreographers, administrators, producers, designers, and more. Participants should be prepared to participate in exercises from the perspective of actors.
Please note – Some facilitated exercises may involve touching (handshakes, handholding, hugging); intimate touch is never required, and modifications are always welcomed.

Introduction to Consent for theatre Artists
Thank you for joining us for our recent workshop on Dec 8, 2019!
Future Workshop Dates To Be Announced
Our work as artists centers around the collective, collaborative experience. We make requests of one another, to perform, to direct, to design etc. Beneath those larger umbrellas comes the smaller specific requests, to participate in a particular action on stage for example. How do we communicate with comfort and enthusiasm our consent and willingness for these requests? How do we say no? How do we have a conversation about it all?
This workshop will serve as a launching point for a conversation regarding consent and its place in the theatre arts. This will be an exploration of the concept of consent and how to develop communication pathways that allow for consent to be requested, given and withdrawn. This workshop will involve a sharing of perspectives and information as well as practical exercises that allow for the discussed concepts to be practiced.
A safe space will be provided. No kissing is required in the workshop, some light contact will be included but will be voluntary.
