Stage Combat Workshop
March 11 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm Eastern
Stage combat (aka fight choreography) is a specialized technique in theatre designed to create the illusion of physical combat / violence without causing harm to the performers. A slap to the face, a fall down some stairs, an epic fifteen-person battle with swords and axes – all of these are stage combat.
This workshop is offered in partnership with Hampton Arts.
