This workshop is for anyone who has interest in finding new ways to move and is fascinated by fighting disciplines. No prior stage fighting experience is required.

Participants of the workshop learn how to execute seemingly dangerous fighting on stage in a safe manner. The chosen instruments for learning safety rules for the fighting in this workshop are sticks but similar rules apply to different weapons. Participants are welcome to join the workshop either with a partner or by themselves.

This workshop is held by Laura Nõlvak who is a certified Nordic Stage Fight Society stage fight instructor. Laura graduated the Drama School of Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre. She has been employed as an actress at NUKU theatre since graduation. She has been practicing different forms of stage fighting since 2002. She started teaching young actors at TÜ Viljandi Kultuuriakadeemia in 2016.

Stage fighting is an energised dialogue between partners where words are not needed. The whole drama of the situation communicates through physical action. Participating in this workshop will enhance concentration and coordination.
