      Texas Intensive for Stage Combat September 6, 2019

      In response to the overwhelming response from all over the state, we here at EDGE of Orion, based in Chicago, IL, are thrilled to offer a workshop to create safe practices in stage combat and romance for the educators in Texas UIL One Act Play. Texas Intensive for Stage Combat (TISC) is engineered specifically for the one-act directors and teachers of Texas. The goal is to provide the tools to keep their participants safe and to know when they need a workshop with an industry professional. With the understanding that they may not bring in a Fight Director (by regulations), TISC will provide a ground floor of safety and consent and will connect the participant to a network of stage combat professionals all over the state. TISC will be offering two days of one-day workshops for educators and one day of a workshop for high schoolers and college students featuring safety and consent, as well as self-advocacy for standard unarmed basics. 3 days of opportunity held in Paris, Tx: Friday- September 6, 2019 - Educators - 24 spots @ $125.00 each Saturday- September 7, 2019 - Educators -24 spots @ $125.00 each Sunday - September 8, 2019 - Youth - 24 spots @ $115.00 each Each one day workshop will consist of the following: - How to engage in physical work with consent and technique. - Creating light hearts around heavy work. - Creating partnership physically on stage through games and exercises - The very basics of dramatic domestic violence - The very basics of hand to hand - Sword fighting with minimal contact sword fighting - The varied and best practices for cooling down the cast physically and mentally. Educators and students are encouraged to attend with questions concerning safe combat and physical contact on stage. Each educator participant will be issued a certificate of participation and completion. This certificate recognizes their attendance at this workshop and in no way replaces the need to bring in a qualified professional. The students will also receive a participation certificate. Certificates will be handed out at the end of each workshop day.

      Cost: 125.00
