Easter intensive, Oslo

Monday 21 – Friday 26 March 2016

The classes on offer are:
1. Basic SINGLE RAPIER and BROADSWORD with NSFS & OFSCEN teacher Ine Camilla Bjørnsten. Single rapier & broadsword are the two most common weapons used in traditional theatre productions. Due to the similarities in weapon handling, we will use LIGHTSABERS in place of broadswords for part of this course.

2. intermediate 1: SWORD & SHIELD and QUARTERSTAFF. These two weapons require more skill than the basic level, and are transferable skills as the weapons occur in mediaeval Europe, China and Japan, to name but a few countries. It’s also relevant for the glut of post-apocalypse and fantasy films, from Lord of the rings to the Matrix.

Obi Wan/Qui Gon Ginn Vs Darth Maul special! The advanced level will be taught by NSFS teacher Bo Thomas from Denmark. Smallsword was the fastest and most deadly weapon used in duels. The lightsaber course is both fun and transferable- using a single sword-type weapon against a staff weapon, like a spear, broomstick, Bo, Jo or quarterstaff. These weapons exist in most cultures across the world and would have often found each other in battle at some point.

Price will be Kr2500 for NSFS/OFSCEN members and Kr2800 for non members.
Full price members automatically become members of OFSCEN meaning they can get discounts off NSFS/ OFSCEN/ courses for the next year.

The course is supported by Studieforbundet Kultur og Tradisjon
