[THEY FIGHT] got the opportunity to work on the Hamlet v. Laertes fight in this incredible space. Look a that trailer!! (Fun fact: Laertes did this trailer--AND he wrote that music!)

Storytelling. Safety. Consent

In successful stage combat, it is imperative to create truthful storytelling moment to moment and move to move. [THEY FIGHT] makes that happen by combining the martial techniques of history with the playwrights’ theatrical vision; when set upon a foundation of safety and consent, actors can bring to life exceptional moment of live action while feeling safe and confident.

Combatants should never dread their choreography—they should revel in it. [THEY FIGHT] uses the strengths of the combatant and a spirit of collaboration to help the actor/student not only perform, but shine.

In short, students and actors must be set up to excel and grow in their choreography. All our work is done with a fully established environment of safety and consent. When this trust (in one’s self and in the other people in the room) is earned, actors will excel in their technical proficiency, storytelling techniques, and look darn good doing it.

[THEY FIGHT] is committed to making excellent choreography affordable for all theaters and schools. Take a look at our prices below. If you’d like to start a dialogue about your budget & combat needs, please don’t hesitate to email us today.

Dance needs in your show, too? We can help. Ask about that.

Ryan Zarecki has been teaching/directing/choreographing stage violence for over 15 years. He first trained in Chicago with Babes with Blades and the Society of American Fight Directors, and he has pursued his training and passion all over the country.

Currently, he is the resident Fight Director and lead stage combat educator at Ohio Shakespeare Festival.

He has dedicated his career to bringing beautiful and professional stage combat choreography to Northeast Ohio with a philosophy of safety, consent, and communication.

Tess was bitten by the stage combat bug in 2016 after having the chance to play d’Artagnan (Three Musketeers….) after a lifetime of playing pretty princess roles. She is dedicated to continuing to hone her personal craft, and she is particularly passionate about training and working with female-identifying combatants.
