Stage fighting
This is my Prezi on stage fighting. Stage fighting is important if you a doing a play with a fighting scene in it. Or even a comedy scene. I am going to show you what to do and whatnot to do to ensure a safe performance.
Parts of the stage
If you are a director of a play and you want to tell someone to go to a part of the stage then you would use these terms. It is used facing from the audiences point of view.
Stage fighting moves
Here I am going to show you all the different types of stage fighting moves and how to do them.
Upstage Right Upstage Upstage Left

Downstage Right Downstage Downstage Left
Raked -

Sightlines -

Blocking -

Nap -

Prep -
A raked stage is when a stage is tilted towards the audience so that they can get a better view of the stage. This is why we have downstage and upstage.

This means the view of the audience. Can the audience see? Are your sightlines good? This is even more important in stage fighting because sometimes you don't want the audience to see exactly what your doing. To hide your move and create an illusion of punching (for example).

Blocking has two meanings in drama:
Planning your movements. If a drama teacher asks you if you've done you blocking this is what they mean.

It can also be used in a way to show that you are infront of someone "Your blocking your partner. I cant see their face!"

This is when you make the fake sound of hitting, slapping, punching etc. someone. You van make a nap by eiher using your hands or torso.

The preparation for a move. It gives a clear signal
to your partner that you are about to punch, slap
etc. them. It will always usually be slightly
more exaggerated in real life. Always
make eyecontact first!!!.
The Punch
The Slap
The Strangle
The uppercut
The Stomach Stamp
The Hair Pull
The Fall
So this is my Prezi on stage fighting. As you can see it is VERY important to stay safe while practicing/performing these moves. If you do not follow these steps (for what to do and safety rules) you or your partner may get hurt.
Make sure if you are punching that your back faces towards the audience.
Make eye contact with your partner.
Make a fist and move your towards the partners/ (person who is getting punched) face in a punching motion.
The person who is getting punched moves their head away/looks away from the the fist, as it passes their face, makes a pained sound and pulls their hands up to their face
While they are making a pained noise the person who is punching makes a nap noise.

Make sure that if you are slapping that your back faces the audience.
Make eye contact with your partner.
Move your hand towards your partners face in a slapping motion
The person who is getting slapped moves their head to the side of the slap, looks away and makes a pained sound and pulls their hands up to their face.
The person who is slapping makes a nap sound while the partner is making the pained noise.
Put your hands in a V-shape. Make eye contact with partner.
Put your hands to your partners collar bone but make sure not to press upwards towards their throat.
The partner who is getting strangled puts their hands onto the stranglers wrists.
Partner pretends to strangle the other partner.
The partner being strangled falls to the floor, pretends to gasp for airand pretends to make strained, gargling noises.
Make eye contact with your partner and make sure your back is facing the audience (if your the uppercutter)
Make a fist and move your fist towards the partners chin in an uppercut motion.
Partner who is getting uppercutted moves their head backwards and makes a pained noise.
While they are making a pained noise the other partner makes a nap sound.
Make eye contact and the partner who is getting stomach stamped lies on the floor on their side with their back to the audience.
The other partner faces the audience with their foot near the partner who is getting stomach stamped.
He/she then pretends to kick the partner who is on the floor in the stomach whilst stomping on the ground.
Partner on the floor makes a pained noise.
Partner 1 makes a fist and puts it on partner 2's head, without grabbing hair, (not too hard.) whilst making eye contact.
Partner 2 puts their hands on partner 1's wrists and pushes down while partner 1 pushes his/her hand up.
Partner 2 is controlling where they go/move
