Taught by Fight Master Scot Mann
So you’re looking to bring that firearm moment in the show to life with a bang? There are a few things to consider that will ensure your process is safe, legal, and ethical and your show is effective and affecting. This two part workshop will take you through the first half of the SAFD Theatrical Firearms Safety Course offering extensive lecture based training in nomenclature, legal regulations governing theatrical firearms, safe handling practices and procedures for theatre and film, and coordination of theatrically effective and safe performance techniques. As we’ll be working online, we won’t can’t offer you the opportunity to work with the props, but you’ll walk away with a strong foundation of knowledge. At the end of day two you’ll be able to take the written SAFD exam which counts towards your safety certification with the SAFD.

Class 2 Materials Needed.jpg
Taught by Jess Finley

Swords with Shields: Exploring the intersection of Sword and Buckler fighting with Messer fighting.

 

The image of a medieval battle is often composed of a man in armor wielding a sword and shield, fighting on foot against a worthy foe.  But what happens if you lose the shield?  Must you shift to Longsword techniques or can you use the same fencing tactics even without having the shield?  In this class we will see how the plays of the Messer (a single handed sword) and the sword and buckler intersect to create a unified fighting system.  Let's get that off-hand working!

 

This class will require a sword simulator (a stick will be fine) and a shield simulator (a pot lid can work).  If you have something to bind and target against, great!  They class will not require it, however, so space to work in will be sufficient.

Advocating for Intimacy
Register Here
Sunday March 28
1:00 - 2:30 pm EST
Taught by Siobhan Richardson
While the consent conversation is catching on and intimacy direction is spreading throughout the performing arts industry, many are still working to bring awareness and understanding to their artistic spaces. It can be intimidating to be the voice of a request to bring in an intimacy professional or implement best practices in a process. This workshop will give you some tool and language to utilize when advocating for all elements of this work to come to life in your production. 

Whether you’re an intimacy director pitching to a production, a director asking a production manager to bring in an ID, an actor or stage manager some practices be implemented in the room, or just an artistic professional discussing the value of this work with your colleagues, this conversation is for you.

$60 USD for the first 6 classes or $12/class

The rapier, the gentlemen’s sword of the late 1500’s to late 1600’s, will be taught in combination with a long parrying dagger.  Although some of the work will be historical in nature, in that we will explore the styles of Capo Ferro, Fabris, Giganti and others, the work will chiefly be Rapier & Dagger in stage combat.  Whether you are set to play Tybalt or Milady, skills with the Rapier & Dagger are key skills for any actor.   All that the actor needs to know about fighting with these weapons on stage will be examined.  

This class qualifies for SAFD certification hours and will culminate in the presentation of performed choreography in March 2021.

The "Long Knife" of Medieval Germany: 

The Langes Messer or Long Knife was a sword-sized, single-edged weapon, with a knife construction of the grip, and a special proto-hand guard called a "Nagel" or nail. It is related to the family of sabers, dussacks, and falchions.  This weapon grew to popularity in the 15th century in Germany, and earlier texts have a very simple system of 3 cuts, 2 thrusts, and 3 parries, and all of the off-hand maneuvers that can work in conjunction with those.  However as time passed, the weapon began to be used in a more complicated manner, and the longsword art of Master Liechtenauer was applied to the Langes Messer, despite all of the problems inherent in applying techniques intended for a two-handed sword to a single-handed weapon.  In this class we will begin with the foundational techniques of cuts, thrusts, and parries, and then move on having a look at the work of Leckuchner, who really was a master of the weapon. 

WHAT YOU'LL NEED: 

A Messer or falchion would be excellent, but this class can be applied to a cruciform single-handed weapon, or even to a stick (about 28" overall). 

 

If you have access to a training dummy in the form of a "Ladder Buddy" or some other rig to hold a stick or sword for you to practice against, it would be helpful for some of the drills we will see.  

A ladder buddy - a stand that can hold a sword or stick to offer you opposition. It can be a stick clamped to a door jam, secured in a laundry basked or bungee corded to a ladder. Click here for a few pictures of how we made one.

PREREQUISITE SKILLS 

None. This class will start at the beginning of training the system.

THINGS TO NOTE: 

Drop ins permitted! Join us for the whole course or just drop in when you can.

This class is being recorded! Access to the recorded class will be available for one week.
