The Martial Arts of Screen & Stage Combat
We can choreograph and rehearse a spectacular fight, but it’s the underlying reality that sells a performance.
This class is an intensive immersion into staging historical combat for the stage and screen. You will learn how a foundation in martial intent helps to create extraordinary fights. Whether your background is in Western Martial Arts, Stage Combat or Dance you will benefit from exploring how to transfer historical combat styles into safe and exciting performances on stage or screen. Participants will choreograph short fight scenes then we will dissect each in order to apply a strong martial foundation to the actions and see how this makes the fight extraordinary.
As we progress you will find the fundamental principles of safety distance, cooperative energy, planar geometry and the process of developing physical actions are applicable to a variety of weapons.
