A full day of dramatic combat with one of Australia’s leading fight directors, N-J Price – with a focus on the real and the messy fights of modern theatre and film. N-J is one of Australia’s most respected fight directors, and has worked here and internationally for over 20 years, from our largest to smallest theatre companies.
So many fights in theatre and film are performed by characters who are in a heightened emotional state, or who have little or no fight experience… or both!
In either circumstance, a dramatic fight that looks overly staged or ‘set’ can completely break the illusion and story of conflict. However how can you perform this kind of action while keeping yourself, your scene partner, the set, and those around you safe?
N-J will throw you deep into this world, breaking apart some of the ‘old’ forms of stage combat and working with what you bring as a performer. We will explore the physicality, movement and story-telling behind these fights; and give you an opportunity to get into gritty and challenging action with fellow performers. The outcome? Making the choreography seamless within the narrative.
Be ready to get messy.
Sunday 19th January, 11:00am to 6:00pm
