Intimacy Choreography + Education
"Passion fades. Choreography remains."
(Chelsea Pace & Laura Rikard, Theatrical Intimacy Education)
Establishing and supporting a consent-based learning and rehearsal environment is integral to Emily's artistic, pedagogical, and personal practices.
Her work as an intimacy choreographer and educator stem from her work as a director, yoga instructor, and intersectional feminist. While she has engaged in these consent- and ensemble-based practices throughout her career, they have become a prominent part of her work in recent years.
She currently serves as an Associate Faculty member with Theatrical Intimacy Education, and she has consulted and choreographed moments of intimacy for productions such as Holiday Inn: The Musical, Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley, Stupid F**king Bird, The Wolves, In the Next Room, or the vibrator play, These Shining Lives, In the Blood, and more.
