Siobhan Richardson

Intimacy Director & Coordinator, Fight Director & Instructor

Co-Founder of Intimacy Directors International 

The marks of an affecting story of intimacy often lie in the subtle ways we tell it. In this workshop, we will seek to investigate ways that breath, voice, and tone add depth and authenticity to a story, the ways they allow for connection with an audience, and how they can provide a performer with an avenue of agency to craft the story and imbue it with character. Through discussion, demonstration, and guided exploration, Siobhan will offer ideas, tools, and techniques for artists to expand their vocal vocabulary and develop a richer vocal soundscape to take your scene from remarkable to breath-taking.

Our goal in performance is to plumb the depths of human experience, and live that genuinely for the audience. In order to do this, each performer benefits from discovering their best methods for Entering and diving into the work, and then fully and completely Exiting that experience. This is helpful for performance/shoot days and rehearsal. It’s also a useful practice during this time of unknowns and multiple stressors. This workshop will share various approaches to Closure (both Entering and Exiting practices), aiming to present the participant with various approaches to start integrating right away.

Rapier & Dagger


6:00 - 7:00 pm EDT

$60 USD for the first 6 classes or $12/class

The rapier, the gentlemen’s sword of the late 1500’s to late 1600’s, will be taught in combination with a long parrying dagger.  Although some of the work will be historical in nature, in that we will explore the styles of Capo Ferro, Fabris, Giganti and others, the work will chiefly be Rapier & Dagger in stage combat.  Whether you are set to play Tybalt or Milady, skills with the Rapier & Dagger are key skills for any actor.   All that the actor needs to know about fighting with these weapons on stage will be examined.  

This class qualifies for SAFD certification hours and will culminate in the presentation of performed choreography in March 2021. 


A Rapier & Dagger or facsimiles. Click here for our recommendation on how to make one. You can use items such as a dowel or umbrella for your rapier and paint stick or DULL kitchen knife for your dagger.

A ladder buddy - a stand that can hold a sword or stick to offer you opposition. It can be a stick clamped to a door jam, secured in a laundry basked or bungee corded to a ladder. Click here for a few pictures of how we made one.


None. This class will start at the beginning of training the system.


Drop ins permitted! Join us for the whole course or just the classes you're most excited about.
