Supporting Staged Intimacy: A Practical Guide for Theatre Creatives, Managers, and Crew examines the relationship between staged intimacy, intimacy direction, and those supporting the creative process.
This book will help backstage and offstage theatre artists recognize the problematic approaches and culture that led to the emerging field of intimacy direction, provide tools and recommended practices for supporting the creation and maintaining of staged intimacy and empower readers with the necessary skills to prompt change. By providing modern techniques, essential workplace protocols, and achievable action items, this book will transform the way theatre designers, managers, crew, and other creative team members engage with theatrical consent.
Supporting Staged Intimacy is written for every pre-professional and professional artist working behind the scenes who wish to better support consensual workplaces, physically intimate stories, and the individuals telling those stories.
Alexis Black is an Assistant Professor of Acting and Movement at Michigan State University, an AEA actor, a fight director and movement specialist for regional, international and Broadway productions, and a certified intimacy director and guest lecturer with Intimacy Directors and Coordinators.
