BA Acting and Stage Combat provides a professional vocational training in stage combat and performance. Applicants will develop a variety of physical performance skills in a disciplined, focused and emotionally connected way. These include gymnastics, martial arts and the use of multiple weapons. It is expected from applicants to be able to face the strenuous physical demands of this course, which is ideal if they have a physical background and want to develop their skills in a creative context using their whole body to express character and story. Over the years, a number of East 15 graduates have gone on to become leading actors, fight directors, stuntmen and specialist performers. This work extends from staged fights on film, television, in the theatre, opera and ballet, to re-enactments of historic battles, and animal and mechanical costume operating work for films.
