Stage Combat Workshop

Saturday November 16, 1:30pm - 3:30pm

Live theatre and performance improvisational acting have truth in common. Whether you ask the audience to suspend their disbelief as you play your story, or you want to build tension so the audience can release that with laughter, conflict is inevitable and necessary. Sometimes that conflict reaches the level of physical violence. Both dramatic violence and slapstick comedy require training, choreography, timing, and rehearsal to be effective and safe in traditional theatre.
This workshop will present techniques used in live theatre to create safe fights and other physical interactions onstage, and the techniques and skills needed to adapt to improvisation, so physical actions onstage are safe, and at the same time tell a story well. What are the limits? What will the audience buy into?
If your improv scenes tend to be static, this workshop will open your mind on how to play the possibilities of the more extreme actions that occur in life, giving you more range and confidence in your physical storytelling.

Environment Workshop

Saturday November 23, 1:00pm - 4:00pm
