This is just the beginning of an ongoing conversation.
Theatre is an art that cannot exist without intimacy – and that word has a whole spectrum of life that goes beyond just physical touch between two people. With the development of intimacy direction, actors and creators are not only given more room to explore, but an intimacy director can help tell a story in a way that maybe they had never even considered outside the very obvious route.

(South Florida – November 2022) Gary Schweikhart, board president of the Carbonell Awards, South Florida’s Theatre & Arts Honors, today announced that the 45th annual awards—the first live ceremony since 2019—attracted nearly 500 theater activists and enthusiasts.
Didi Romero’s enthusiasm is palpable even through the Zoom webcast. The moment she joins the call, she is all jokes, chronicling how she had mistakenly prepared for the interview the day prior, and reenacting her surprise and confusion when she saw an unopened zoom link staring back at her from her computer screen. You wouldn’t know that at the time of the interview, the 23-year-old actress had been in isolation because of an unfortunate positive covid test- her energy shone despite the sickness. Don’t let this short pause fool you- she’s had a jam-packed 2022, touring the country with the Aragon Tour of the hit pop musical SIX, a concert retelling of the lives of the six wives of King Henry VIII.
Acclaimed Miami-based dance pioneer, Karen Peterson, and her mixed-ability KPD Dancers are back in South Florida this week to highlight their Fourth Annual Forward Motion Dance Festival and Conference of Physically Integrated Dance (FM4).
The shows will feature the KPD ensemble and another troupe, Full Radius Dance. Both groups focus on the work of disabled and non-disabled performers, joining together on stage to craft unusual and entertaining pieces.
From award winning South Florida Actor/Writer/Director, Paul Louis, comes the film, “Army Men”. The dramatic short film is based on a true story about Louis’ childhood friendship, which ended in tragedy. “Army Men” tells the story of a middle aged Miami based artist who returns to the tough battlefield of his childhood neighborhood in Queens, NY, only to be haunted by the memories of his late best friend.
Louis says it’s a story of friendship, loss and regret, and hopes to bring awareness of mental illness, especially in children.
A rainy deluge outside didn’t dampen spirits inside The Addison restaurant in Boca Raton the night of Monday, Oct. 17, site of the annual Silver Palm Awards gala honoring actors, directors, set designers and performance troupes for excellence at stages in Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties.
The gala – which served as a major post-COVID get-together last year for the awards that were first presented in 2008 – drew a full-house crowd to the famed Boca dining location, despite the weather that messed with travel and forced valets to break out large umbrellas to escort patrons to and from their cars.
