At first, I was doubtful about the necessity for an Intimacy Choreographer for my plays. Most of my plays are sexually themed. And at this point in my career I’ve written and directed quite a few. But having Nedra made the work more concise and the level of mutual understanding was heightened. She made a positive difference. She was also the Covid Compliance officer for my film, If I am Good. She worked diligently to keep each of us safe and abiding by the guidelines. I strongly recommend her.
The creative shelter is a place where people open up their hearts and go deep to find their inner artist. Being vulnerable is the only way to get there. Having Nedra made everyone feel safe, where there is trust there is creativity. We are beyond thankful that we made the wise decision to have her as a part of our process.
I have known Nedra for a Minute or Two. It’s wonderful to see her evolution as a professional. We have long worked together as Actors but bringing her to the rehearsals for Revenge of the King as an Intimacy choreographer was an asset to the rehearsal and the development of the play. She knows theatre from all angles from Actor to Director to light Operator, Stage Manager and even Janitor when needed. Her attitude is great and her knowledge and professionalism a blessing.
When Asha asked me to write a testimonial on her behalf, I didn’t realize what a hard task it would be because, as a writer, I have been trained not to use superlatives, and when thinking about her, those are the only words I can come up with! She’s like a character out of a novel, a larger-than-life figure, a benevolent fairy godmother who also happens to be a straight shooter and tough as nails when needed. It’s like having an on-site empath, who is always listening and sensing the feelings of others, no matter how subtle those feelings may be. Asha has become as instrumental to our success as a production as anyone,me included. I feel that I have been graced by God that she is on my side. I could not recommend her any more highly.
If I were an actor performing a scene in which I was asked to simulate sexual activity with another actor, and perhaps be or completely naked, I would not want to feel naked emotionally. I would want someone with the sensitivity, the intelligence, the warmth, and the compassion of Asha Mollier on set to in the rehearsal room supporting me. I would want Asha Mollier herself.
