Stage Combat 101 with Josh Marx
This intensive workshop will cover all the basics of unarmed violence on stage and give actors the tools that they need to punch, kick, fall, slap, and choke in convincing, believable, and safe ways. We will go over basic philosophies of mimed physics, go onto practical application, and then have time for Q&A with our fight master before conclusion.
