The Saturday Showdown Workshop: Fight Scene Performance: Escalation and De-Escalation

A fight is often the highlight or climax of a scene, but the payoff is in the emotional buildup at the beginning and the physical catharsis at the end. This workshop breaks down how actors develop those moments before the fight - where/how to identify the threat and the thought processes of different characters. Then once the fight is done, we examine varying characters' mentality after violence has been committed. How do different character portray shock? Catharsis? Peace? Anyone can perform choreography with enough practice, but an informed and prepared actor can truly bring a fight performance to the next level.

This workshop is all about working fights based in closed, tight environments. We will be adapting a combination of military CQC and civilian self-defense techniques for choreography, then performing it at varying levels of spacing and intensity.
