STAGE COMBAT MASTERCLASS: Theatre at the Mount
STAGE COMBAT MASTERCLASS
Saturday, January 20, 10AM to Noon
The goal of this workshop is to introduce performers to the art of stage combat. We have all seen plays and movies with amazing fistfights and sword fights. This workshop will begin to pull back the curtain on how these awesome fights are created and done safely. In this workshop, students will start with hand-to-hand combat. This will cover fighting stance, punches, slaps, chokes, fainting, and falling. The second part of the workshop will cover single sword fighting. Students should expect to learn proper footwork, attacks, parries, and safe handling of a sword for stage combat. It will be a fun and challenging workshop that will prepare actors for roles that will require stage combat knowledge.
Ages 16 and up.
Instructor: Will Gelinas.
Special Program Fee: $20
