Hello,

Once again, we are excited to announce the dates for the annual Art of Combat Fight Directing Workshop in New York City July 5th-11th.
Last year's workshop and performance were a great success and we anticipate another exciting year, (filled with familiar and new faces).

This one week intensive will give you the skills needed to create extraordinary fights for stage and screen. Classes (taught by Jared Kirby and John Lennox) will include stage combat, historical fencing, acting the fight, finding your angles and much more. The workshop will culminate in a show to be performed at the Access Theatre, 380 Broadway in New York City. Basic information is below but the website has so much more:

This workshop is an immersion into the AoC company which has been actively transferring historical combat styles to stage and film for over a decade. Members are trained in historical combat styles and learn how to make them safe and replicable for stage and screen. Our training and expertise has enhanced theatre, film and TV with authentic and realistic combat sequences all around the world.

Take Care,
Jared Kirby


Art of Combat Fight Directing Workshop

The week is structured so that you will get the most out of it. You can register at one of three levels, based on your skill level and what you want to learn: “Combatant”, “On Track” or “Fight Director”.

For participants with no previous experience or those with experience who want an introduction to the Art of Combat organization you can register at the “Combatant” level. You will learn the basic elements of AoC combat for stage and screen. You will take classes in a variety of subjects and rehearse in scenes choreographed by the Fight Directors. There will also be rehearsal every day for a show you will perform in, in New York City that Fri/Sat night.

For those already at the Combatant level and who are starting to work towards becoming a Fight Director you can register at the “On Track” level. There will be opportunities for you to work as an Authorized Combat Instructor, Fight Captain and/or Asst. Fight Director depending on what you need. Your skills will be honed by working the scenes, culminating in the show to be performed in New York City.

Finally, if you have completed all your requirements and are ready to test for Fight Director you can register at the “Fight Director” level. This will prepare you for your exams as well as provide an environment to start your testing process. There will also be the opportunity for probationary FD’s to choreograph the Fri/Sat night show to fulfill one gig requirement (while getting a NYC credit).

This workshop is perfect for Stage and Screen actors as well as Opera Singers and Dance performers. Daily subject matter will draw from classical and contemporary material to study dramatic and comedic situations.

Hello,

The early registration deadline for the Art of Combat Fight Directing Workshop has been extended to April 15th. There have been many questions about accommodations (NYC can be an expensive place to visit), so we have updated the housing page with some cheap alternatives to booking a room:
http://www.artofcombat.org/Workshops/accommodations.htm

We are also looking for people in NYC who will rent out a spare room or even their couch for the week and these housing arrangements are available to participants on a first come, first serve basis. If you want to house a participant or you are planning to attend and need help with housing please let me know.

Take care,
Jared Kirby
