Intimacy Workshop

The Montford Moppets Youth Shakespeare Company is pleased to announce “Embracing Boundaries: An Inclusive Workshop on Consent-Forward Directing, Working with Minors, and Demystifying Intimacy in Theater” for local directors, artists and theater administrators. Embracing Boundaries is a one-day workshop on being a consent-forward director, working with minors, and dispelling common myths surrounding intimacy in the theater.

Intimacy education expert Sami Mills will guide participants through essential techniques for fostering a safe and respectful environment in your theater. Participants will discuss the nuances of directing with consent and will gain valuable insights into when and why hiring an Intimacy Director is crucial for your production.

This workshop is open to individuals of all levels of experience. Interactive exercises will be offered on an opt-in basis.

A Quick Guide to the Managed Sliding-Fee Scale

In order to make our workshops accessible while also attempting to ensure that we can pay our instructors a fair rate, the Moppets have adopted a managed sliding-fee scale for this workshop, based on Alexis J. Cunningfolk’s “How to Make the Sliding Scale Better for You + Your Clients.”

  • The second-highest cost ticket is the actual cost of the class. If you choose a ticket price below the top tier, you are receiving a discount.
  • The third-highest price is for those who are able to meet their basic needs but have little-to-no expendable income. Paying for this class may qualify as a sacrifice but it would not create hardship.
  • The lowest price is for those who struggle to meet basic needs and paying for this class would still be a significant hardship.
  • The Pay-It-Forward price is a few bucks above the actual cost of the class. That extra money goes towards supporting scholarships as well as future free and low-cost classes. Essentially, it’s an opportunity to not only take your class but also support your fellow community members while you’re at it.
