Stage Combat Director / Performer
Stage Combat is one of the most exciting and challenging forms of performance, for audience and actors alike. However, many people do not realise what goes into performing fights so that they look effective while keeping the actors safe. The Stage Combat Director oversees the basics of working with action on stage – the techniques, the principles, the story-telling – and how you use them to best effect.
