Malin B. Erikson Intimacy Coordinator

Before Malin trained as an intimacy coordinator, she worked as a performing arts director, actor trainer and acting coach. For over 20 years she has lived and worked in Asia, North Africa and Europe. Movement, embodiment and emotions have always been central parts of her work. She has studied Actor Training and Coaching (master) and directing at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama (RCSS), Dramaturgy at RADA and Pedagogy (BA) at Umeå University.

Malin introduced intimacy coordination to Sweden in August 2019 as Sweden’s first intimacy coordinator after training with pioneer Ita O’Brien. For a year, Malin continued as a student with Ita O’Brien and today meets international standards and requirements for expertise, training and experience in accordance to Sag-Aftra’s  Intimacy Coordinator Standards and Protocols.

Malin coordinates and choreographs intimate scenes for both large and small productions within TV, film and performing arts. Her repertoire includes – My Brilliant Friend (Kulturhuset Stadsteatern), Snabba Cash (Netflix), Deg (SVT), Vinterviken (Netflix), and Tisdagsklubben (SF Studios).

As a pioneer in Sweden, a big part of Malin’s work is about spreading knowledge which she often does through lectures, workshops and panel discussions of various kinds.

Malin is a co-founder of the  Nordic Intimacy Coordinators (NIC) and The Intimacy Practitioners’ Guild (IPG) and is part of a larger network of intimacy coordinators from different parts of the world
