Fight Club: Stage Combat 101

Have you ever felt the need to slap your scene partner?  We know how you feel. Violence is a part of the life we create on stage, and there isn’t always a fight choreographer to help. Actors and directors need to know how to tell a clear story with violence and how to perform it safely. In this workshop, participants will learn basic principles of unarmed stage combat that will help create simple, safe, and effective violence on stage. Dress to move.

Class is Monday, Nov. 11, from 5 to 6:30 p.m for youth ages 10 to 18 ($10) and 6:30 to 8 p.m. for those 18 and older ($1).
