PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
The Wayne Theatre, the ARROW Project, and the Virginia Commission for the Arts are presenting a lecture/workshop series this autumn entitled “In Good Company.” “In Good Company” is designed to provide training and insight to be able to balance power in all rehearsal and performance spaces, allowing all participants to feel safe, valued, and seen. Our valley is saturated with both amazing theatres and colleges with high caliber performing arts programs.

The Wayne Theatre and ARROW would love to make sure that practitioners, both those currently forming their methods and those who are actively working, have access to this information and training. Through engaging, challenging, and purposeful activities designed by the presenter(s) the intent is for the current mindset of the participants to be molded into that of an advocate to take our arts forward to a safer, more inclusive space for future performers. Participants should leave the doors of the Wayne, returning to their own homes, studios, and institutions, revitalized and with a greater sense of the arts community and how to make it accessible and healthy for all.

~ Intimacy and Consent Work: Best Practices for Rehearsal with Cara

Rawlings and Jessica Morgan (Dec 11, 2022, noon-3pm)

Cara Rawlings is Associate Professor of Movement and Acting in The Department of Theatre and Cinema at Virginia Tech. Ms. Rawlings has worked professionally as a teacher, fight director, intimacy director, movement coach, and dance choreographer in theatres across the U.S. and abroad in Greece and Austria.  Ms. Rawlings is a Certified Stage Combat Instructor with The Society of American Fight Directors (SAFD). She has studied Alexander Technique through the Chesapeake Bay Alexander Studies Teacher Training Program. As a Certified Intimacy Director with Intimacy Directors and Coordinators (IDC), she is focused on creating safer spaces for performers by acting as their advocate and responsibly guiding them through the process of staging choreographed moments of intimacy in performance. She is a member of the Association of Theatre Movement Educators (ATME) and has served on the board of Southeastern Theatre Conference (SETC).  Ms. Rawlings holds a Master of Fine Arts in Move


This workshop is based on exploring the topic of consent and active bystander intervention in theatre communities. Participants will explore existing attitudes and beliefs around sexual violence and consent and will discuss tools to create safer spaces for artists. We will explore factors that may prevent people from intervening, strategies to address harassment, and highlight the roles of bystanders in rehearsals and in theatre spaces, examining when a director has the skills to be the intimacy coordinator and when an expert should be in the rehearsal space.

 

ARROW will provide counselors on site for any participant who might need to talk to a professional privately, they will be available for Q and A after all
presenters, and they will also provide resources for all participants.
