D.C. Wright Presents Stage Combat Workshop on Oct. 13

8027661055_4d4d3c0e0f_zWe all love a good fighting scene onstage and what you might not realize is how much work goes into each push, jab, punch and kick. It takes the work of a professional like D.C. Wright– a Master Instructor with Dueling Arts International and Head of Movement and Stage Combat at Western Illinois University– to create a artful (and realistic) fight without compromising the safety of the actors.

Have a chance to learn the art of combat in live theatre from Wright for a special Stage Combat Workshop on Monday, Oct. 13 at The Rep. Here is the rundown of the workshop:

5:30 p.m.  l  Sign-in, gather on 3rd Floor
6:00 p.m.  l  Workshop begins

This workshop will safely explore stage fight techniques that focus on portraying the most visual effect on stage. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Attire – loose fitting comfortable clothing for movement (no jeans or skirts); closed toe laced shoes (no sandals or flip-flops)
  • Class size limited to 25 participants
  • Most participants should be able to actively engage in the class.  There is limited space for a few participants to observe the class only.
  • Safety – very safe class if all follow the rules and guidelines of the instructor.

The class is $20 and is for ages 15 and up. Registration is required– register here!
