Event description




Fight Performance Workshop at St Luke's Church

Acquire some new performance skills or refresh your muscle memory with our three hour Fight Performance workshops with Fight Arranger Dan Burman.

Learn to convincingly slap, punch and strangle your opponent while feeding character and performance into 'Acting the Fight'.


This workshop is aimed at those looking to gain some experience and knowledge of fight performance to use in film, stage or just for fun. Ideal for total beginners or those wanting a refresh of the fight performance basics.

The workshop will include:

Introduction to Fight Performance
Basic techniques
Choreography and Performance
Pain Memory
Text into fight and back out again


Perfect for those with some knowledge / previous experience & understanding of fight performance who want to push themselves a bit further and acquire new fight performance skills. You don't have to have attended our beginners workshop to but experience / basic understanding of fight performance is advised.

Taking elements of the above workshop and pushing things further, the intermediate session is a fun, challenging and very physical three hour workshop, great for those looking to continue their fight training, brush up on technique and acquire new skills ideal for screen and stage work.

We will also look at the very different skill of group fights:

Hero or Henchman
How to fight multiple opponents, how to be a good henchman and take care of the central fighter and how to time everything perfectly so no-one is waiting around!
