They Fight: Stage Combat Essentials Following the frequently used Shakespearean stage direction “they fight,” this workshop gets participants active and moving to train in the fundamental elements of stage combat while they learn about the history of performing violence during Shakespeare’s day. These basic techniques explore the importance of safety and believability in onstage battle, and explore the potential of physical storytelling through partner connection and conflict.
