The Grant

The title of this project is “Developing transferrable strategies for communicating stage combat technique and choreography to artists.” What this means is that I’m looking at how we describe stage combat to performers, and how can we improve those methods in order to better facilitate the creative process. How do we get performers past the basic technique so that they can focus on the story? On the character and plot development?

So far the development has been phenomenal! By traveling to different theatre environments I’m able to experience various methods of teaching and directing. As I bring these practices home, we’re experimenting with the various ways that we can present this information, yielding fantastic results.

My hope with this blog is that people I work with can share some of their revelations along with my own to maximize our discovery this year.
