The need for actors who know how to fight is bigger than ever, so there’s never been a better time to channel your inner fighter and train in screen & stage combat!
This summer workshop is an immersive week with New York Combat for Screen & Stage which has been training actors for nearly two decades. Our goal is to provide a place where actors can hone their craft in creating safe violence for screen and stage. NYCSS focuses on grounding fights in martial reality to make sure the action is highly realistic and an integral part of the story which reveals character.
All stories have conflict. Often that conflict can be expressed in various levels of violence. In fact, violence can often enhance the story being told.
Some of the material we may cover over the week includes
- Fantasy Sword
- Takedowns Ground Fighting
- Multiple opponent
- Bar BrawlsCamera Awareness
- Violence Performance Theory
- What does that feel like?
