A member of the Society of American Fight Directors, Black is also a certified intimacy director with Intimacy Directors International [now IDC]. She's designed with sex and blood and bodies from Broadway to South Korea.
"It's not like the movement [of including more women/nonbinary designers] is excluding men," she says. "Women in design aren't waiting for someone else to create space at the table. They're saying, 'Hey, we're making this table bigger.'"
