If you’re in the theater scene, you may be familiar with stage combat — choreographed “pretend” fights that are meant to look real, but keep the actors unharmed. BattleKat Combat is a local stage combat company that has choreographed several fights for theaters in the area.
The company is run by husband and wife, Will Snyder + Rachel Craig, and they are teaming up with UTC’s Theatre Department to host Scenic City Slam, the first-ever stage combat workshop in Tennessee.
The workshops will be held on Saturday, Oct. 14 + Sunday, Oct. 15, featuring a large variety of classes in addition to combat (think: stunt work, intimacy, and stage movement) for all skill levels. Note: You must be 18 years or older to participate, but those underage are welcome to observe the classes.
