Revealing the practicalities of choreographing realist fight scenes on stage in a way that is both convincing for the audience and safe for the actors, this guide takes the reader behind the scenes. It 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. Topics covered include the role of the fight director, action and reaction, unarmed combat, using weapons, and safety aspects. This tool will be of interest to all drama students, teachers, choreographers, and amateur dramatic groups.

Jonathan Howell has worked as a dancer, actor, choreographer, and director, abd created fights for theater, television, musicals, opera, and ballet. He currently teaches stage fighting.
