This conversation is teeming with content, strategies, and tips, so prepare to take notes! Jeff A.R. Jones and Lormarev Jones discuss the concept of care of Community and Company through the lens of Intimacy Direction, a growing field in both the theatre and film//television industries.
Jeff A.R. Jones has staged fights and/or intimacy for over 175 shows in theatre, opera, and ballet. His fights have received rave reviews in The Washington Post and The New York Times. He is a Fight Director, Certified Teacher, and Theatrical Firearms Instructor with the Society of American Fight Directors and a Certified Intimacy Director with Intimacy Directors and Coordinators. He is on faculty at Elon and William Peace University. Jeff is currently in the process of starting Triangle Intimacy Lab, a space to practice the craft of staged intimacy without the pressures or timeline of a production.
Since this recording, host Lormarev Jones was accepted into the Level 3 Certification Program with Intimacy Directors and Coordinators, which Jeff refers to as IDC in this interview. That work continues to be a life-affirming and career-affirming educational experience for her.
Content warning: there are mentions of staging scenes containing sexual assault. Nothing in detail, but it is mentioned a couple of times.
