About This Activity

"Humankind moves to satisfy a need." Rudolph Laban was a dancer, actor, scientist, and combatant who studied movement in a revolutionary way. In this advanced stage combat workshop, students will study the eight effort qualities of the Action Drive and how to utilize them in observation and analysis of their own movement. Students will be able to enhance their understanding of acting the fight using Laban, as well as better understand movement efficiency, ergonomics, and performance. With hands-on guidance from the instructor and video feedback, students will be able to see the changes and adjustments accomplished in order to apply Laban to their performance life. Over the course of two days, students will be given instruction on performance somatics, alignment, movement fundamentals, anatomy, breath, and more, and how to directly apply the material to their work. Pre-requisite: Intermediate or Advanced Stage Combat Status, SPT in Unarmed and at least two of either Single Sword/Small Sword/or Rapier and Dagger.
