Raja Benz – Intimacy Director

By | April 10, 2022

Hey there RVA theatre community! My name is Raja Benz (she/her) and I am the new Community Engagement and Outreach Manager at Richmond Triangle Players at the Robert B. Moss Theatre.

What most people might not know is that I also work as a professional intimacy director for live performance!

What is an intimacy director? We are specialized artists and choreographers who facilitate the staging and execution of scenes depicting any kind of physically or emotionally intimate content! We offer tools for a more justice, equitable, diverse, and inclusive process of making performance, and ultimately aim to create ways for the artists in the room to tell more stunning, specific, and intentional stories.

Feel free to check out my personal website at RajaBenz.com!

I’m currently offering free 15-minute consultations to learn more about whether an intimacy professional is right for your next project! I always offer my services on a sliding-scale and continue to focus on accessibility to this work across all budgets!

May be an image of 1 person and text that says 'Raja Benz- Intimacy Choreographer Assistant Faculty, Theatrical Intimacy Education LETS WORK TOGETHER! train the whole company, department, or ensemble so that you aren't on your own when the choreographer goes home. This is about culture change, not just choreography.'
