Titus Andronicus Opens!

The pit, the pie, blood pumps, and lots of knives! Titus Andronicus has been a fun production to work on. Building the moments of physical violence has been a challenge, due to time and budget constraints, but both the cast and stage management team kept a positive attitude and learned a lot. For me, assisting with the stage combat has been an invaluable educational opportunity. I learned how to build a vocabulary that reaches both actors that are expert stage combatants and newer actors who need a lot of coaching to work through moments of physical altercation. In the end, a safe, exciting, bit of bloody fun was had by all. Check out some action photos from the show below.
