Stage Combat

This class applies the definition of acting as “behaving truthfully under imaginary circumstances” to the stage combat world. You must have the skills to tell the physical story with as much accuracy and commitment as you bring to the spoken word. You must be able to meld truthful emotional life with a performance that remains collaborative, repeatable and safe.

You will learn advanced hand to hand and grappling techniques, knife and sword work for the stage. With the instructor’s’ guidance you will learn the process of crafting your own staged fights.
