Stage Combat 101 and Improvisational Acting Event

"A lot of action movies today seem to have scenes that just lead up to the action."
Jason Statham Lights Cameras ACTION!!! This month we're taking the time to go over a very simple breakdown into the moves and theories behind Stagecombat, then improvising scenes to use them in towards the end of the class. As well as all of our usual Improv games to get the fun started. You need to be prepared to get physical this time, so make sure you bring the correct clothing and be sure to warm up at the start of the class! Also a quick congratulations to everyone who came to the last meetup with a prepared monologue. If you want to see yours, or are just interested in what everyone else did, check out:

    So much fun! And a chance to learn really useful stuff. Now if I ever have to slap someone in character or choke a scene partner I am ready to go! Adam is a great inspiration and he's awesome for underwriting these free evenings. Kudos!

    By the end of the night, some of the staged fights looked creepy real, and the improv exercises we did were new, fundamental, and made improv real to me for the first time. I'm still not good at it, but I do, finally, 'get it.' The facilitators are skilled both at stagecraft and at working with actors at many different levels of development and awareness. The learning atmosphere is relaxed, friendly, upbeat, and emergent.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
