"...and they fight!"

Possibly the vaguest stage direction in theatre or cinema and the most underestimated. No more than a footnote in most classical text, these three words have come to be the bane of many a director, actor and most recently professional fight choreographer. Many factors must be considered when crafting the illusion of violence. Style, weapon selection, time constraints, textual restrictions and actor proficiency all play a part in the choreographer's ability to create a fight that is not only to the director's liking, but also believable and entertaining. But, to risk a pun, the proof is in the punch and actions speak louder than words. Now is your chance to see for yourself the true potential of stage combat.
