Theatrical Intimacy Workshop with Laura Rikard

On August 25, as part of her process of directing Paula Vogel’s Pulitzer Prize winning play “How I Learned to Drive,” Director Brook Davis received funding from the Teaching and Learning Center to engage Laura Rikard, founder of Theatrical Intimacy Education, to lead a workshop for her cast to help them navigate the play’s themes of love, family, and sexual abuse. Ms. Rikard will teach best practices for staging theatrical intimacy, empowering the actors with the tools to ethically, efficiently, and effectively stage intimacy, and sexual violence.
