Stage Combat Workshop with Aaron Conrad & John Knight
Learn stage combat from the fight choreographers of Scorpio Theatre's Cry Havoc 3!
SYNOPSIS: From the Award winning choreographers of Shake the Crowd Productions (Cry Havoc, 3 Musketeers, Reservoir Dogs), we present our 2015 stage combat workshop with Aaron Conrad and John Knight. Hot off their latest project -Scorpio Theatre's Cry Havoc 3, Aaron and John will be leading participants through the basics of hand to hand stage combat and broadsword work. The first day will cover theory and basics, with a chance on the second day to practice and finesse what has been learned.
INSTRUCTOR BIOS: Aaron Conrad is a Calgary based professional actor, director and choreographer and is also the Artistic Director of Scorpio Theatre. With over 10 years of choreography experience he brings a unique blend of traditional and modern stage combat techniques with a consideration for character based narrative in combat ensuring that characters fight the way they ought to fight.
John Knight has been a Calgary based theatre artist for the past 11 years. He has worked as an actor, director, fight choreographer, and stunt performer. Over the years John has worked with some of the best fight folk this country has to offer and this has helped him develop a collaborative approach to stage violence. This ensures the director's vision, the actor's skill and the story told all have equal voice in the fight.
