This will be a physical session where participants get the opportunity to take part in some stage fighting techniques. You will learn about distance, angles, knaps (impact sounds) and the best ways to sell your fights for your character. Although this session is open to people of many differing levels of physical ability it does require some rolling about on the floor and ‘flailing around’ so might not be suitable for those with more intense physical restrictions. It doesn’t however require you to be an athlete so don’t worry. If you have any specific injuries please let the instructor know prior to the class.
Although this is a stand alone session participants will be invited to join the Acting group for the performance afternoon on the 21st August at 2pm if they would like to show their final fights. This is completely voluntary but we would really love it if people would like to come along and show what they have learned.
