Learn the tools and techniques it takes to craft safe and believable acts of violence on the stage. This class will explore the world of unarmed stage combat. From refining your uppercut, to selling the pain of a knee to the stomach, to safely falling, this class focuses on the intricate choreography stage combat requires from an actor to ensure crucial moments of a play are executed in a believable and (more importantly), safe way. Over four weeks you will learn some of the basic techniques as well as what goes in to creating a moment of violence on stage and how it differs from film. Come and enjoy some knock down drag out fun all while keeping you and your partner safe. All experience levels welcome.
