Two Fantastic Classes coming up next week!

~ Fighting on the Spectrum ~
Stage combat requires the ability to tell stories of violence while maintaining the safety of all involved. Having the capacity to create these stories in multiple different ways is paramount. This skill set is crucial when working with collaborators who may have a variety of access needs. "Fighting on the Spectrum" provides both practical and pedagogical tools and perspective for working with neurodivergent collaborators in stage combat. All of which can ultimately make the artform more accessible.

~ I FEEL VERY ATTACKED ~
So you've come across someone whose tone seems very pointed right now.... Choices... A reminder that you're perfect, you're beautiful, you look like Linda Evangelista. Come learn the basics of snatching wigs (with hopefully another wig underneath), falling down (then getting up, looking sickening and making them eat it), and slapping out of it. Actors, start your engines, and may the most joyous combatant win. (High Heels welcome)

DEADLINE EXTENDED!

The Society of American Fight Directors’ inaugural Fight Directing and Acting a Fight Workshops are happening this June in Columbia, MD!

Applications are due THIS SATURDAY by 11:59pm on March 9th!

Learn more at www.SAFDWorkshops.com

The SAFD is now accepting student applications for the inaugural Fight Directing Workshop and Acting a Fight Workshop, taking place on the Campus of Howard Community College in Columbia, MD!

The Fight Directing Workshop is a multi-week intensive where participants will be challenged, mentored, and evaluated in the art of choreographing violence. Ideal candidates will have extensive experience in choreographing violence as part of a full production team. The workshop will consist of multiple choreography assignments of varying sizes and complexities, operating in tandem with the students from the Acting a Fight workshop. Successful completion of the FDW will qualify candidates for the rank of Associate Fight Director with the Society of American Fight Directors. FDW Applications close February 29.

The Acting a Fight Workshop is a training opportunity designed to offer stage combat actors tools to elevate their acting performance in scenes with heightened physical engagement (from the savage to the slapstick). This workshop will feature a hybrid classroom/rehearsal room format: students take classes focused on performance and then practice applying these skills through a fight rehearsal process choreographed by Fight Directing Workshop candidates. Open to performers of all stage combat skill levels. AFW Candidate review will begin March 15, and applications will close April 1.

For application instructions, please visit www.SAFDWorkshops.com Questions? Please contact Mike Lubke, our FDW/AFW workshop coordinator, at [email protected]
