Stage Fighting : A Practical Guide, Paperback Book


"Stage Fighting" reveals the practicalities of choreographing realist fight scenes on stage in a way that is both convincing for the audience and safe for the actors.

All kinds of combat are explored, ranging from ritualised swordplay through to the slaps and punches of a bar-room brawl.

The book takes the reader behind the scenes and explains how the illusion of the fight is created, looking at topics such as working with a partner; warming up; training, rehearsing and performing; and creating realistic sound effects.
