MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA: TUESDAY EVENINGS, 19th April to 24th May 2016
The Fight Focus sessions are a comprehensive training series that give you the foundations of fighting with specific weapons and styles for stage, screen and performance capture (motion capture).
We kick off our first series with a general favourite in film and theatre: “BROADSWORD” (or hand-and-a-half sword, if we’re to be more correct!).
This 6-week course is designed to focus in on the technical aspects of using these kinds of swords in a dramatic context, and from this grounding then exploring performance in different media.
By focusing on one weapon for the series, we will have the opportunity to get a solid understanding of the techniques we can use to keep sword fights safe, look effective, and look like our character knows what they’re doing! These foundations you can then apply to different styles, genres, eras and characters; and to further specialisation in these areas if this is of interest.
And of course playing with acting choices and story-telling that is essential to bringing the performance element of a dramatic scene to life.
That is – we are going to have a huge amount of FUN.
There will be historical context threading through the course, however please note this this is a Dramatic Combat course and not a Historical Martial Arts course – for that do chase down the many great local HEMA groups!
Tuesday evenings, from 19th April to 24th May 2016, 7:30pm to 10:00pm.
Time4Fitness, 2/131 Johnston Street, Fitzroy, 3065.
The course will cater to all levels of experience. We also cater to all levels of physical fitness and abilities – although of course the more in-shape you are, the more you can get out of each week. You will also benefit greatly from training and rehearsal in between classes. If you have any questions or are unsure, just get in touch.
