DOR (Fight Director, Movement Director, Intimacy Director, Intimacy Coordinator)

Yarit enjoys collaborating with actors and directors to create physical storytelling using fights, movement and intimacy. She is an Ensemble Associate Artist of Shakespeare’s Globe, Associate Movement Teacher of RADA and teaches Intimacy, Stage Combat & Movement in several drama schools in London. Training first as a contemporary dancer, she performed as part of Hagit Yakira Dance Company and later became their Dramaturge. Pursuing an interest in various forms of physical expression, she studied on the Jacques Lecoq 2 year programme at LISPA (now Arthaus Berlin), did an MA in Theatre Directing (Rose Bruford), and went on to become a BASSC Certified Stage Combat Teacher and a Certified IDC Intimacy Director and IDC Intimacy Coordinator.


She is one of the leading UK voices in intimacy for stage and screen, and the first to be officially credited as an Intimacy Director in the West End for her work on Death of A Salesman (2019). She contributed new intimacy guidelines to Stage Directors UK and to Directors UK’s “Directing Nudity & Simulated Sex” booklet. She is chair of Bectu Union’s Intimacy Coordinator’s Branch.
