– Carey Purcell contributing writer for American Theatre
IC en Scene works with the Director and Actor(s), to stage all things intimate from a casual kiss to a sexually explicit scene for film, theater and photography. Ensuring the actors’ security and navigating them through the process. Making sure the cast, and crew understand fully how the intimacy fits into the narrative. That those participating in the intimacy feel safe. That consent is ongoing. That there are clear steps of how to report harassment : to whom and where. That all those participating know that the expectations and conditions of the intimacy has been fully communicated and agreed too prior to the blocking of the scene (s). And that actors have time and a safe place to adjust and get out of character afterwards.
