STAGE COMBAT WORKSHOPS

The main goal of Andrew's workshops is to promote safe, technical training for actors (professional and amateur), or anybody interested in understanding the techniques of safe and effective performance combat. His teachings are based on a system of putting reality first, theatricality second to create realistic choreographed fights. Using eye contact, balance and distance they remain a safe and sure way of delivering an exciting and believable physical performance. This system was first created by John Waller over 30 years ago and is still used by many leading Drama schools to enable students to pass there exams in stage fight from the British Academy of Dramatic Combat. It was used for 15 years at the Royal Armouries Museum to create jaw dropping fight displays. Andrew offers courses ranging from Foundation, for the complete novice through to Intermediate or Advanced for the professional performer. Actors in the Yorkshire area can work towards gaining a high level of understanding about the art of stage combat and the ability to apply this to future projects. A vitally important skill for actors. The courses make an appealing addition to your CV, and are a great opportunity for Actors to brush up on stage combat skills. Andrew can also offer one to one tuition to Actors wanting to improve their understanding of certain disciplines of fight for future work or auditions.
