Spring 2014 Curriculum: Stage Combat

One of the more special classes offered this Spring semester is Stage Combat, taught by our Voice and Movement Profesor Matt Weedman.

When asked why the class was so important Matt responded, "The goal of the stage combat class is to help actors learn how to truthfully and realistically depict stage violence in a way that contributes to the story of a play. Students learn how to accomplish this goal in both unarmed combat and single sword choreography with an overarching emphasis on safety and clarity of movement".
