Intimacy Coordination and Direction Training Opportunity
Janine Waddell, ACTRA IC and CAEA member Intimacy Director, will be creating a team of trainees this Fall for those who have a keen interest in entering these demanding and evolving fields. She is looking specifically for those from the Global Majority, Disabled Artists as well as from the TSLGBTQ+ community, but anyone can apply. No previous experience or training in Theatrical Intimacy is necessary though movement training and a knowledge of basic set etiquette is helpful.
Training costs will be minimal if any to ensure that financial situations are not a prohibiting factor. Those who are selected will have both group and individual training experiences which will include shadowing and assisting on gigs when possible. The goal is for committed team members to meet or exceed all requirements and expectations by the Canadian Theatre and Film industries. If you would like to be considered for the first round of trainees, please email her at firstname.lastname@example.org .
If you have already contacted Janine regarding working with her, please send a cover letter, headshot and current resume to email@example.com .
Applications will close on September 15th, 2021.
