Titus Andronicus Begins!

I am thrilled to be the assistant fight choreographer for our department’s production of Titus Andronicus. Shakespeare’s bloodiest tragedy features a lot of one-sided violence, like torture and stabbings, rather than the usual back-and-forth two-way violence of a sword fight. The director and designers have planned for the use of a ton of stage blood in performance, which is an element of the theatre that I am unfamiliar with and excited to learn about. It should be an interesting challenge to assist the fight choreographer in balancing the amount of brutality called for with the storytelling needs of the play.
