FALL TEACHER WORKSHOP

The Combat Illusion:

Teaching Stage Combat to Blood Thirsty Students

This intensive day long workshop will guide participants through the challenging craft of stage combat, covering important safety skills for use on stage with their students. This is a practical course, with teachers first observing and then participating in the techniques and exercises guided by instructors, Matthew Dray and Susannah Wilson. The workshop will provide the opportunity to learn empty-hand choreography, as well as how to safely engage in fake “brawls, falls, and more! The lesson will also include how to build a fight that supports the text.

Participants of the Stage Combat workshop can expect to:

• Learn the basic skills of unarmed combat

• Understand the mechanics of a fight scene

• Learn important safety factors necessary for fight scenes

• Learn how to build dramatic tension with fight scenes

• Learn how to build a fight template to fit a text

Actors have special requirements when it comes to fighting: that it looks effective to an audience member, and that it can be performed repeatedly and safely in rehearsals and multiple performances on stage. Stage combat keeps actors safe and audiences entertained using the illusion of violence: timing, measure, targets and victim-control. The aim of this workshop is to foster a thorough understanding of the many dimensions of portrayed violence. Workshop Leader: Matthew Dray

dray3Matthew Dray is a Boston based actor and fight choreographer with extensive training in unarmed stage combat and the martial arts. His acting credits include The T Party (Company One), A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Classic Repertory Company), Enemy of the People (New Brooklyn Theater), Metamorphosis, and The Traveling Lady (Boston University). His fight choreography credits include The Sickle Play at the Boston Playwrights’ Theatre and Macbeth at the Classic Repertory Company. He has a BFA in Theater Arts Performance from Boston University.

Fall Show Lineup

One of the favorite things about the METG programs for students is meeting so many fellow drama geeks from schools across the state.  Participants share a special bond after participating in any of the events together, and it’s so cool to keep in touch with the people you meet.  We love seeing this tradition continue.  Going to see the friends you’ve made in their school’s production is a perfect opportunity to support the friends you’ve made in the past!  Here are the shows for the 2016-2017 school year.

Middle School Writing Prompts

Though searching through lots of evaluation article examples can give you the help which you desire, you may want to think about asking an expert writer to make a custom essay for you. If you will compose an intriguing, distinctive article, you’ll must complete investigation. Educators frequently utilize evaluation essays to know how well the pupils understand a particular matter. Also if writing an composition based upon personal experience, it really is great if you’re able to back up your own opinions with facts.
