143. SPECIAL TOPIC: Intimacy Design & Training with Dr. Kate Busselle Beckett’s Babies

Hello listeners! Get ready to LEARN something today! We're super stoked to have Dr. Kate Busselle joining us to discuss Intimacy Design and Training in Theatre. This was such an insightful discussion. We know you will learn a thing or two! Dr. Kate Busselle is Founder of Heartland Intimacy Design & Training, which offers academic, accessible, and affordable intimacy training entirely online through self-paced asynchronous modules. She is also Assistant Professor of Movement and Stage Combat at the University of Oklahoma and is an Actor Combatant with the Society of American Fight Directors. As a researcher, Kate is invested in not only providing the tools of staging intimacy, but providing context as to how and why theatrical intimacy, nudity, and sexual violence needs to be staged. Most recently, she served as the Conference Intimacy Consultant for the Great Plains Theatre Commons Playlab. To learn more about Dr. Kate and her work, be sure to check her out on social media!
