Courtney Abbott (they/she) is an actor in the midwest.
Since graduating with my MFA, I have been living and working in Chicago as an actor, intimacy director/coordinator, and fight choreographer. I am excited to do more work as a voice over actor.
Prior to graduate school I spent twelve years performing in the Catharsis Productions show Sex Signals. I traveled worldwide to college campuses and military bases, rallying communities to identify and interrupt gender-based violence. The award-winning program was groundbreaking in its use of comedy and interactive education to raise awareness around consent and sexual assault prevention.
I used the copious airline miles collected during this job to travel around the world.
In 2018 I entered the MFA program at Ohio University where I expanded my skills of facilitation and knowledge of cultivating a culture of consent to include work as an intimacy coordinator/choreographer.
Courtney Abbott conducted several successful intimacy sessions with the participants of SITI Company's four-week intensive training program in Saratoga Springs. The results of her work were immediately visible in the care and consciousness that each person brought to the consequent Viewpoints sessions. We are grateful for her wisdom and generosity. - Anne Bogart
