Master Class: Stage Combat - Basic Moves and Falls with Ashley H. White


Master Class: Stage Combat - Basic Moves and Falls 
Saturday, October 20th | 2:30-5:30pm
No pre-requisites required

In this workshop, we will cover the basics of staged violence and develop a toolkit for use when staging (and improvising) future scenes. Moves covered will include slaps, punches, chokes and shoves. The class will conclude with staged falls and tips and tricks to falling and fighting safely. We will end with a fun bit of choreography, including a sequence that can be added to anyone's toolbelt for a quick and believable moment of violence onstage. Due to the nature of a physical class, this workshop will move at the pace of the students.
