What is Intimacy Choreography?
"Intimacy Choreography is a creative and technical process for creating physical and emotional intimacy, nudity, and sexual violence in live performance. From simple kisses to elaborate and graphic multi-partner intimate moments, well-choreographed intimacy ensures that the director and actors are free to do what they do best: tell powerful stories." - Chelsea Pace, Intimacy Choreographer, Coordinator & Educator
"I worked with Caitlin in a production of Tommy Smith’s ‘White Hot'. The play contained a very graphic and long sex scene. Her technical direction in choreographing both the foreplay leading up to the intimacy and then literally each thrust of the intimacy (which, dear God, contained an entire monologue) ensured that I felt protected during both rehearsals and the run of the show. The clarification and respect of boundaries we established with me and my scene partner made me feel safe. Her open communication and continual checking in on our comfortability with the intimacy ensured a positive, consensual experience. She is a joy to work with. - Michal Sinnott (Law & Order: Criminal Intent, One Life to Live, Grand Theft Auto V)
