Discussion: CAMST – How do we work with intimacy on stage?

Price: 0 € Length: 1,5 h Language: Swedish

CAMST (Cefisto’s team against sexual harassment) gathers the Finnish-Swedish theatre field with a discussion on how intimacy is handled and worked with on stage. The worldwide #MeToo movement shook the cultural field hard, with thousands of people coming forward with testimonies on sexual harassment and harmful work environments. Since then, a new profession has sprung forth – an intimacy coordinator ensures the well-being of people involved in intimate scenes and maintains a respectful dialogue between actors, directors, and producers alike. With experts within the field and profession, the discussion endeavours to explore what it means to work with intimacy in a safe, qualitative, and sustainable way.

Guests to be announced later.

CAMST is Cefisto’s team against sexual harassment, a group formed in reaction to the #MeToo movement. CAMST strives to keep the discussion regarding sexual harassment ongoing and to challenge the structures that enable inequality to thrive in the Swedish-speaking art field in Finland.
