Teaching Stage Combat & Intimacy Virtually

In this workshop, we will begin with an overview of some fundamentals of sword work, intimacy, and intimate/domestic violence, then explore virtual teaching strategies as well as live/virtually coaching a live or virtual production. We will be having fun and also dealing with intense stuff, so wear something comfy, be prepared to do some moving, some listening, some sharing, and bring your warm supportive heart.
