Another Star Wars and Game of Thrones theme guest, we already had the chance to meet at Lucca Comics this year. This is Miltos Yerolemou that will brighten up the Starcon 2019 with its fantastic workshops on the Water Dance of Braavos For 90 minutes each workshop, in fact, Miltos Yerolemou (Syrio Forel in HBO’s Game of Thrones) will introduce the participants to the art of sword fighting, comparing what we see on screen with the reality of the duel through the centuries in various cultures. Drawing on his work experience with some of the world’s best combat choreographers, he will share his insights and his understanding of the art of the sword. Miltos has already put these lessons into practice with people of all abilities and ages, even with blind and wheelchair users. Miltos teachings adapt to the participants of each lesson and therefore no class is always the same. In pairs and individually, Miltos will provide the basic techniques for choreographing combat routines, while remaining faithful to the art of dueling, in the style of Braavos.
Places are strictly limited. Only 20 seats per class. It will be possible to book the workshops as extras through the registration form. The final number of workshops will be established according to the program of the event.
