PRESS & TESTIMONIALS
INTIMACY DIRECTION IN DANCE
"Other intimacy directors hired for dance productions, like Yarit Dor, Sarah Lozoff and Anisa Tejpar, were professional dancers who started doing intimacy work while working in theater and film. In addition to consent and boundary practice, they advise about modesty garment options when partial nudity is involved. "
NEW YORK TIMES
"But his words are not enough. They fight anyway (beautifully directed by Yarit Dor), so he exiles them both."
Richard II, Shakespeare's Globe
"Her presence in the rehearsals that we did with her before shooting, going into a room together and blocking out each moment, and how we were going to shoot them, and the placement of our bodies, even down to the placement of our hands or foot or leg… It allowed a real safety around it. It meant that when we got on set, we were able to just relax about it and concentrate on the content of the scene.."
