Professional Consultation and Fight Direction
Frog in Hand offers a range of fight direction services for all stages of your production, from development to performance. We are ready to help you create the illusion of violence through clear storytelling and techniques for all kinds of contexts - in the round, proscenium, site-specific... Whether it's a simple slap or a full duel with rapiers, we can help and nothing is too small. Need help directing actors fall to the floor safely? A fight with unusual objects? We've got you covered. Frog in Hand also offers a unique blend of dance combined with stage combat to achieve an abstracted communication of tension or violence. Beyond this, if we can't do it we know someone who can. Please don't hesitate to send your questions and inquiries our way.
Media reviews of Colleen Snell's fight direction for Eve of Saint George:
"It’s slow and intimate and broody — until Snell’s fight choreography kicks in." - The Toronto Star
"The show’s combat scenes are intense, highly physical and brutal—made even more so by the close proximity the audience is afforded to the action." - Mooney on Theatre
