cARTel will be bringing to you a three day, fast paced, action hero experience with our new stage combat and stunts workshop. Lead by cARTel ensemble member Peter Berube, you will learn the thrilling techniques and art form behind safely executing staged violence. On top of being a great work out, this work shop will increase your abilities as an actor to move, and fully embody the characters you are playing. In the first two classes you will be learning basic maneuvers as well as training with some simple choreography. The last class will be about you studying the art of choreography through the examination of a scene and culminating with the creation of your own, original fight scene.
Peter Berube is a fight choreographer and member of the Society of American Fight Directors. Peter has received rave reviews for his choreography in dozens of fights for both stage and screen. For the past 8 years Peter has been teaching combat workshops to all ages and skill levels.
