Creating Consent Culture in Theatrical Spaces

As the theatre community begins to emerge from the grips of the COVID19 pandemic, there has been a return to the in-person performances that we all love. But even as we celebrate being able to share physical spaces again, it is crucial that art is produced in a way that respects the physical and emotional boundaries of performers.

For this reason, the MTA is sponsoring a workshop with Sarah Provencal to educate attendees on the creation of a theatrical space that is brave and empowering for all who enter. We will be introducing concepts from Sarah’s training in intimacy direction in the efforts to make theatre a space welcoming to all bodies and souls. Expect an exploration of boundaries, consent, and transparency. 


About the Instructor

Sarah Provencal is a director, teacher, actor, and intimacy choreographer. She earned her MFA in Theatre Pedagogy (Directing emphasis) at Virginia Commonwealth University and has worked and trained abroad in Spoleto, Italy, and London, England. She has been directing in Charlotte for almost a decade, most recently with Actor’s Theatre of Charlotte, Warehouse PAC, JStage, and Three Bone Theatre for which she directed Branden Jacobs Jenkins’ Appropriate (Awarded “Best Drama” by Creative Loafing’s Critics Pick).

She is an adjunct Professor of Theatre and Box Office Manager at Winthrop University and a teaching artist at Children’s Theatre of Charlotte. She regularly facilitates Theatre of the Oppressed workshops with students, professors, and professionals—both on college campuses and at national conferences.

As with all MTA workshops, attendance is free for current individual members. In addition, any member theatre companies will be allowed to designate two participants who can attend at no charge. For non-members, there will be a cost of $35. However, this $35 fee will cover not only the cost of the workshop, but an entire year of membership with the MTA. Not a bad deal!
