Stage Fighting reveals the practicalities of choreographing realistic 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; trainong, rehearsing and performing; and creating realistic sound effects.

Topics covered include: The role of the fight director Action and reaction Unarmed combat Using weapons Safety aspects
