Ever get a visceral reaction from watching a fight on screen or on stage?
Thanks to the success of action movies in the modern age, stage/film combat and stuntwork is more practical than ever before! And it doesn’t just apply to your one-off kung-fu or James Bond movie anymore- stage/film combat is a useful tool for actors of all ages and genders! This class will provide a basic understanding of safe and effective unarmed and armed fight choreography for all formats of storytelling. Say goodbye to those fake cheesy punches!
FILM COMBAT AND ACTING:
This fight class is first and foremost an ACTING class. As actors, we need to take care of our bodies. This class will also provide a basic understanding of human anatomy and physiology so that students will understand and visualize how to do certain moves safely and effectively. We will also lightly discuss theidea of painand how it is unique to each move and intention. We will practice how to effectively convey those feelings to an audience. Half of the move is the victim and theaggressor “selling it.”
GOALS: Each move will get progressively more and more difficult with each week. We will start with the basic and most common moves, and then graduate to more technical moves. My goal is for each student to have a variety of moves that they are comfortable with when booking a gig that requires stage combat. At the end of the term, each student will be partnered with another student in the class and asked to put a pre-choreographed set of moves to text.
They will rehearse and perform these 2–5-minute scenes infront of a small audience as their “final”.
SAFETY: Safety is a top priority in any stage combat class or rehearsal room. If a student is feeling sore or uncomfortable at the start of the class, that needs to be brought up to the instructor before class starts. Further, if a student starts to feel any sort of pain or discomfort within class time, they must stop what they are doing and inform the instructor immediately. This is STAGE combat. It should be treated almost like a dance. Everything must be choreographed, and the victim must be in control with each move. PERFORMANCE SPEED IS ALWAYS 75%. This class deals with a lot of heightened physicality. Each student is encouraged to
stretch before class, and wear comfortable clothes / shoes to move around in. Students are also required to bring knee pads when instructed.
