LaMaupin

July 10th – 23rd, 2017

Fight Director for La Maupin the Musical by FIELD AND FIELD. Really excited to bring the story of this woman to life on stage. The production is described as:

Julie d’Aubigny. Swordswoman. Opera Singer. Rogue. Notorious bisexual. In La Maupin this creature of legend lives again, in a fast-paced musical adventure. At her peak, Julie was a force to be reckoned with – bashing bigots, tumbling chambermaids, and taking on some of Opera’s most iconic roles, from Pallas Athena to Dido. But under the legend there is a woman before her time. A woman trying to navigate an austere world that never quite made sense to her. Accounts vary; was she a lunatic or a martyr? A hero or a cautionary tale? Only one fact goes undisputed about Julie d’Aubigny, La Maupin: She is a legend.

Performances are July 18th at 6:30pm, July 21st at 6:30pm, and July 22nd at 2pm as part of the Fresh Fruit Festival. Make your reservations now!

Here are a few shots from rehearsals:

Teaching at CombatCon: Where History and Fantasy Meet! in Las Vegas, NV.

CombatCon is many things, but first and foremost, it’s a good time.  The goal is to provide a fun, entertaining, and educational venue for folks who like Western Martial Arts/Historical European Martial Arts in any form, be it practicing them, reading about them in their favorite books, watching them in their favorite shows and movies, seeing them in their favorite comic books, using them in their favorite games, or incorporating them into their favorite costumes and characters.

To that end, CombatCon is a combination of a martial arts convention and a fan convention.  We have something for everyone, from taking part in martial arts classes, to interacting with famous people and super knowledgeable folks in panels, to watching movies, to dancing the night away at our ball.  Bring your costumes if you’d like, but don’t feel compelled to dress up if you don’t want to.  Really, CombatCon is just an excuse to get together with friends and fun people, learn some stuff, talk about some stuff, and have a really good time.
