Once upon a time the ability to fall, tumble and ‘fight’ onstage was part of what being an actor meant. Nowadays slapstick and stage combat training is still an incredibly useful tool that can be applied to any theatre style. Many styles really demand it – Clown, Shakespeare, Commedia dell’Arte, for instance. The physical discipline that is required develops focus and builds trust within the group, and yes, getting to pretend punch your friends is also pretty fun. (All conducted within safe, clearly explained parameters!)
