Toronto Community Dance Love-In presents Enquiring Under Forms: A workshop with Francesca Pedulla June 19-23, 2017

Francesca Pedulla (ITA) is interested in dialogues.. successful ones, unfinished or failed ones.

In framing the workshop she says, ” The complexity of the body in motion is a challenging and a stimulating research opportunity, revealing many questions…How does our individual anatomy define/influence our experience? How do we adapt to external conditions? How do we share the moment? How  do we tune into ourselves? How do we dance together? During the classes I will employ theoretical and practical input, discussion, individual and group games and improvisation, and some dancing together….”

Dance artist, independent researcher and curator, dance teacher, Francesca holds a masters in History of Theatre and Performing Arts, and a diploma as professor of African Dance Expression – FEIDA Bordeaux. She is certified to teach the Axis Syllabus. Since 1998, she spends several months a year living in Benin, whose culture has been a profound influence.

As directors and coaches, you’ve probably worked on intimate scenes and know how difficult they can be to stage comfortably. Learn the techniques and the language to stage human sexuality in a way that is professional, dynamic, and focused on storytelling.

In this 4 hour workshop, you’ll learn specific techniques for helping actors to access their vulnerability in a dramatic context, resulting in powerful chemistry between characters without compromising personal boundaries.  Focus is on subtle and specific details in choreography, and on acting exercises to keep partners connected physically and emotionally.  The work is an exploration of vulnerability within a dramatic context for the purpose of telling the story of the scene. We’ll also touch on suggestions for Best Practices, the foundational Intimacy Pillars, addressing permission vs. consent, psychological safety, and minimum working conditions. Exercises include “instant chemistry and comfort” and “asking for consent”, as well as a brief discussion on how to approach choreographing moments of intimacy.

This is not just kissing or sex scenes. The principles can include the intimacy between parents and children, between dear friends, and can also apply to scenes of sexual violence.

Touching (handshakes, handholding, hugging) is part of the course. Kissing is not required. While the goal is to explore emotional and physical intimacy, the core concept of this work is Safety, for the facilitation of safe exploration. All touching is consensual, and participants are always invited to sit out and watch, should they feel uncomfortable or triggered.

The Instructor:

Tonia Sina is currently the Intimacy Choreographer and sexual harassment prevention advisor for the Stratford Festival in Ontario, Canada. She is the Artistic Director of Reduxion Theatre Company in Oklahoma City, and an international Intimacy for the Stage workshop teacher and choreographer. Tonia has been researching Intimacy for the Stage and Sexual Harassment in the industry since she began research for her thesis in 2004.
