About the Event
History of Intimacy Coordination: Introduction to the history of intimacy coordination and the role of the first people to classify and develop this area of the industry. This session focuses on researched based intimacy for screen, the impact and aftermath of #metoo and the establishing of the role of Intimacy Coordinators in the arts industry.
Comprehensive consent and boundaries: - the concept of consensual touch between actors and establishing the difference between permission and consent. This section allows actors to safely and effectively discover and recognise their own physical boundaries whilst giving them the tools to communicate these boundaries effectively to their co-actors and directors. "Boundary work" helps the actors to distinguish the difference between being "safe and uncomfortable" vs "dangerous and uncomfortable".
Introduction to the Pillars of Intimacy: - a method designed and conceptualized by Tonia Sina and is the basis of all Intimacy Directors International's philosophy. These pillars focus on consent, context, communication, choreography and closure of intimate work. These pillars are used throughout our Intimacy Coordinator training.
Way forward: During this session we will discuss to how protect the work of intimacy coordination as well as practical ways to raise the standard of the industry regarding intimacy for the screen.
