Thank you so much for your interest in how to make fights funny! Unfortunately, this workshop is sold out or has passed, but we look forward to seeing you in the future and bringing you on future Flying V adventures!


How To Make Fights Funny, with Matthew R. Wilson!
BETHESDA, MD  Flying V is  proud to present:  SAFD Certified Teacher, GWU professor, Faction of Fools Founder, and PhD, Matthew R. Wilson, as a guest instructor to teach a 4-Hour Workshop, How To Make Fights Funny, from 6:30-10:30pm on April 1st, at the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Regional Services Center!

CLASS DESCRIPTION: Explore theories and devise choreography that turns realistic unarmed violence into moments of slapstick whimsy.  Philosophy of comedy applied to character relationship [STATUS] and relationship to audience [GENRE] to examine how conflict turns comedic.  Participants will learn established techniques, invent new techniques based on application of principles from comedy and combat, and generate their own choreography in a non-realistic style.  No previous experience required, but familiarity with unarmed combat a plus.

FEATURING: Matthew R. Wilson, PhD, SAFD Certified Teacher, AEA, SAG-AFTRA, SDC

ABOUT FLYING V: Founded in 2011, Flying V is a non-profit, ensemble-based company dedicated to creating theatre that invigorates and inspires people to live life with a greater sense of appreciation and adventure. A gateway drug that bridges the gap between pop culture and high culture, we are dedicated to the creation, development, and production of vibrant original work, offbeat contemporary plays, and performance art inspired by genre fiction and other modern mythologies. By creating work that reflects the intimate struggles of the human condition through vivid, high concept metaphors and artistic vigor, we hope to shine a light on the loneliness and isolation that so many feel and create a sense of connection and wonder. We are your Friendly Neighborhood Indie Theatre. Expect Awesome. Be Awesome.
