Daniella has over a decade of experience directing onstage intimacy in both professional and academic settings. Some productions for which she has choreographed intimacy include: That Pretty Pretty, or The Rape Play, Crave, Macbeth, Vinegar Tom, Surfacing, A Roller Rink Temptation, novaya zemlya, and Kodachrome.
She has trained with Theatrical Intimacy Education (TIE), is certified in Mental Health First Aid, and is continuing her journey with Intimacy Directors and Choreographers (IDC) to obtain her formal certification.
Daniella brings a queer, feminist perspective to this work. She believes that a consent-based, trauma-informed approach to handling onstage intimacy and nudity is essential to creating a safe working environment where performers are confident to take risks and do their most daring work.
