IT’S CODE OF CONDUCT
International Theater Stockholm strives to create a warm and welcoming environment for all. Our Code of Conduct applies to all performers at IT’S.
- Help us to create a safe, supportive and friendly environment free from harassment of any kind. Treat your fellow performers and audience members with respect, both on stage and off stage. Speak up if you feel at risk or witness any harassment, bullying or inappropriate behavior. Contact us here.
- Depicting violence on stage such as slapping, kicking, dragging or carrying in a dangerous manner, requires proper training and clear agreements within the group about safety and boundaries. Without sufficient training, performers are not allowed to engage in stage fighting or any activity that is unsafe.
- Respect each other’s physical and sexual boundaries. Always be aware of any signs of discomfort in a fellow player and cease the behavior that is causing discomfort. We strongly encourage groups to discuss their boundaries of physical intimacy before performing together, for example whether you are ok with kissing on stage. Please stay away from inappropriate touching or removing clothes.
- Make your partner happy. Make them look and feel good – on and off stage. No improviser should feel pressured to do a scene, or put up with behavior that makes them feel uncomfortable.
- We do not allow drug use or excessive drinking before performing.
- We strongly encourage all performers and groups to have some thought behind what they wear on stage. Dress up and whatever you do avoid looking like you don’t care. Don’t wear shorts or clothes with holes in them. Whether you all dress up in a certain style, coordinate outfits or go for a smart dressed-up look it will lift your show. Also, consider wearing clothes that won’t limit you physically on stage. Avoid anything too revealing. For example, you might want to wear hot pants under skirts/dresses and tank tops under low-cut tops.
