EDI@SDA: Theatrical Intimacy & Building Cultures of Consent Workshop

September 15, 2021 (12:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.)

As an actor, director, writer, designer, stage manager, producer, how do you handle or address working on plays that have intimacy (physical, sexual, social, emotional, violence, etc.)? We have a workshop opportunity for you that will help you find answers to this question.

We are partnering with Carly Weckstein, Intimacy Director and Theater Director, to facilitate a dynamic and engaging Intimacy in Theater and Building Culture of Consent workshops for SDA. Students will learn how to establish safe boundaries and create agreements during acting scene work, directing work, design work/fittings, applicable in both the classroom and in rehearsal/production. Participants will also learn about creating cultures and environments of affirmative consent to honor and respect everyone’s sense of gender identity, gender expression, safety, and well-being within our artistic and educational community of SDA.
