With period dramas and medieval/fantasy epics all the rage, this course offers you the opportunity to swing around the quarterstaff and learn the skills needed to perform fights on stage and screen. Historically this six foot stick weapon caused a huge amount of damage, smashing and breaking anything in its path. It has appeared on stage and screen so often over the years, and to use it means business.

Theatrically, if characters in a production are driven to violence, its inclusion by the writer is usually for a very specific plot purpose, but as a performer to use a weapon such as this requires discipline, safety and precision. Technique and attention to detail is paramount.
This course will teach you the basic techniques and safety aspects needed to perform staged quarterstaff fights convincingly, and will explore the different styles involved when emulating it on stage and screen.

Day one: you will learn the techniques and styles required before moving on to learn a choreographed fight with dialogue.
Day Two: working on your choreographed fight to produce a fight scene presentation, to demonstrate all aspects learnt. In the afternoon of this day an APC examiner will attend and assess the work of the students through a Basic Level Examination.

The techniques the students will learn have been tried and tested in performing fights for theatre and film and will stand them in good stead for use should they be called to perform such in their careers.

Kaitlin Howard is a fully qualified and insured Stage Combat Instructor, trained by the BADC and now affiliated to the APC.
