Join TDF for a Conversation About Staging Sex Scenes in Theatre

Date: Aug 25, 2021

Two intimacy directors on the delicate but necessary nature of their position


Let's talk about sex, baby—sex on stage that is! TDF is partnering with NYC-based theatre Company of Fools to present a conversation about intimacy direction, a relatively new profession that ensures performers in intimate scenes—including but not limited to simulated sex scenes—are safe and comfortable. Intimacy directors Cristina "Cha" Ramos and Brooke M. Haney chat about what they do, how they became involved in this line of work and the challenges of their field. Join us on Wednesday, September 1 at 3 p.m. ET on TDF's Facebook page or our YouTube channel for this illuminating discussion moderated by Company of Fools' managing director Collin Blackard.
