About CISCo

May 14, 2018 - June 1, 2018

at Western Illinois University, Macomb IL

From students starting out to actor/combatants getting those last few styles, from professors seeking faculty development to professional actors looking to pick up extra skills, this is the workshop for you!

This workshop is for actors of all experience levels. The small class size (20 student max with 5 Instructors: a 1 to 4 ratio!) allows for personal instruction and individual attention. The skills learned here will help you create compelling theatrical fights with a wide variety of theatrical weapons. Skills that are perfect for enhancing many plays, including Shakespeare!
