About this Event
This workshop is an introduction to consent-based practices in the creative process, specifically for those in teaching, directorial, or choreographic roles. Intimacy for the Stage is a hot topic in the professional performance, but consent needs to be considered in performance training as well. After the Creating Consent Culture in Performing Arts Training Workshop, the performing arts educator and/or maker will be able to create a plan of creative practice for consent-based rehearsal rooms and classrooms that center the work, while upholding student safety and agency. The material is applicable to teachers and creators in any setting.
