Hi! I'm Sara (they/them) a certified and Sag-Aftra recognized Intimacy Coordinator and Consultant working within the tv, film and performing arts sectors.
I grew up in the 90s/00s in Stockholm, Sweden, as queer kid from a big selected family with massive dreams and a particular interest in black wholes, deadly deceases, magic, and all things pink. I played handball from age 6 till 16 until I finally broke my hand in the national finals. Despite being the end of a personal era, it did get our team a winning strike. From then on, team spirit has been the only thing that really matters.
As an Intimacy Coordinator I have coordinated more than 50 projects, for (almost) all major platforms worth mentioning within TV, film and the performing arts' sector.
I have also mentored several Intimacy Coordinators in training internationally, and guided many aspiring directors during their student productions at both college and university level.
Certification - Intimacy Coordinator
Masters degree - International Performing Arts, Stockholm University of the Arts
Bachelor degree - Social Anthropology and Identity studies, Stockholm University
Collage degree - Dramaturgy and scriptwriting, Biskops Arnö Folkhögskola
Not to forget - I have lived in Brazil for 4 months, in India for 8 years, learned 4 languages and studied various forms of urban dance, meditation, poetry, acting and psychology. Clowning is my current jam.
Over the years, and many bumpy roads later, I have learnt a lot about consent in both theory and practice. I know how to cultivate consent based work environments, brave spaces, and psychological safety.
You can also reach out to me if you want guidance in Gender and Sexuality related questions or Queer perspectives.
This fall of 2023 I start my degree as a nurse and midwife. In short you'll be able to hire me as a medic on set and medical consultant.
I credit the Black, Indigenous and Queer communities, as well as my colleagues and collaborators from all places and paths, who have contributed to establishing and developing the practice of Intimacy Coordination.
