PQA Hull Stage Combat Masterclass
On Saturday 16th June the students from PQA Hull took part in a fantastic Stage Combat workshop in their Comedy & Drama sessions with Neil from True Edge Stage Combat.
The secrets behind stage combat were explored in the workshop that focused on how to make a fight look great on stage. They broke down the tricks and learnt what the best techniques are to perform unarmed combat. They learnt how to work with their partner in order to make the audience believe what they were seeing. They watched Neil perform the trick and then they had a go themselves and they thoroughly enjoyed it.
True Edge say ‘they have mastered and tailored the art of stage combat in order to provide a safe but effective way to portray the conflicts that can occur in both real life and in fantasy. Stage Combat is seen in film, television and theatre, whether it’s a simple slap around the face, or the use of a dagger. True Edge offer a safe, fun and exciting way to learn this versatile craft from the expansive knowledge of their instructors’.
