This course is suitable for complete beginners and those actor-combatants looking to improve their unarmed fighting skills for film and theatre. Unarmed is probably the most requested skill set for fight performers and this course will cover all the essentials as well as build your strength and confidence to make you a more effective performer.
We will also focus on acting skills and students will work on incorporating their fight choreography into dramatic scenes. Exploring topics such as character objective, fight rhythm and staging, actors will learn to create a fight where they are connected and truthful and as such engaging to an audience.
The course culminates in an exam with the Irish Dramatic Combat Academy in unarmed fighting, providing industry recognised certification on Saturday 10th June 2017.
5th April - 7th June 2017, (every Wednesday evening) 7.00 p.m. - 10.00 p.m. at The Lir Academy, Pearse Street at Grand Canal Quay, Dublin 2. Exam held on Saturday 10th June 2017.
