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of the concept of consent and how to develop communication pathways that allow for consent to be requested, given and withdrawn.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.
