FRIDAY EVENINGS. 28th July to 25th August 2017
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).
Our next series features a favourite across a range of film genres: THE STAFF
Forms of a ‘long stick’ as a weapon span an incredibly wide range of historical periods, cultures and genre – from Eastern martial arts, to traditional European, and of course to Fantasy and SciFi.
During this series we will be training towards a solid understanding of how we handle a polearm weapon and apply it in a dramatic context. We can use these techniques then to explore different forms and styles, learning what we need to do to keep these fights safe, look effective, and look like our character knows what they’re doing.
So we will be honing in on form, technique, conditioning, integration of movement, awareness, control, relaxation… While exploring the story-telling needed to bring a dramatic scene with this weapon 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!
Friday evenings, from 28th July to 25th August 2017, 6:30pm to 9:30pm
Body Voice Centre 50 Wolverhampton Street, Footscray
