WHAT IS INTIMACY DIRECTION AND COORDINATION?
Intimacy direction and coordination consist of tools and practices that allow artists to create choreographed kissing, simulated sex acts, intimate touch, and instances of nudity/revealing dress in a way that is empowered, consent-based, professional, and repeatable. It involves choreography, discussing consent and boundaries, and occasionally masking as needed.
Think of it like fight choreography, but for intimate moments of storytelling.
