Intimacy Direction - Theatre
Working with Megan was a joy and a pleasure. She not only made intimacy work easy and understandable for myself and the actors, but she also made the exploration and discovery fun. She taught us that the process of finding what could be possible in a scene is just as valuable as locking down the choreography. Her approach emphasizes character specificity, toward what story is being told in the given moment. She also empowers the actors to tell her and the director what feels truthful. Once they have their boundaries and comfort established, with her guidance, they can play within the consensual sandbox they have established themselves. I loved exchanging thematic ideas with Megan about the play and the intimate scenes. She has the mind of a director, understanding and building the moment-to-moment work, as it impacts the piece as a whole. Additionally, she has the empathy and play of an actor, so can speak to their vulnerability, and allow a safe space to try things. I cannot wait to work with her again.
