from the perspective of a movement specialist

direction

FIGHT AND MOVEMENT

Often brought into projects that have long sections of heightened physical action (including prologues, movement pieces, or a scene that expresses the climax of dramatic action through violence or intimacy (see Intimacy Page), Alexis Black

directs these scenes with an emphasis on physical storytelling and responsible partnering, fitting the scene seamlessly into the production as a whole.

Hope Summer Repertory Theatre production of Elephant and Piggie's WE ARE IN A PLAY

1/3

"Truly every technical aspect of this production--among them, the gorgeously crafted sets, Isabella Byrd and Hared Mezzochi's ingeniously clever lighting and projection design, and the complexity of the flying and fighting choreography (Katie Spelman, Paul Rubin and David Leong [Assistant Alexis Black]) -- is top notch and on par with any Broadway performance."
