Title IX

'Title IX for the theater' — MCC director emphasizes emotional safety in intimate scenes | Theater | wacotrib.com, At a time when men in Hollywood and halls of power throughout the nation are being called to account for past sexual misconduct, McLennan Community College associate theater professor Elizabeth Talbot’s lessons about on-stage intimacy take on a new resonance.

In a recent exercise, six of her students paired off to explore various stages of platonic and romantic relationships through only gazes and physical touches. The most intimate touch in the exercise would be a hug, Talbot told the students up front, along with an important caveat: The students can stop participating at any time.

Talbot specializes in what she calls “Title IX for the theater,” guidelines designed to protect the safety of actors performing scenes with kissing, sex, rape or anything requiring heightened emotional vulnerability.

“A lot of this has come out of millennials, which is brilliant because we’ve been telling millennials forever that they have rights,” Talbot said. “And now they’re going, yes, we actually do have rights. As a millennial myself I think it’s really important that those rights are heard.”
