Heroine, at the Pacific Theatre in the South Granville / Fairview area of Vancouver, was an enjoyable evening put on by a young energetic company of performers who call themselves Affair of Honor. The group is committed to the performance of “visually stunning fight and movement based theatre.” Find out more about the company at https://www.patreon.com/affairofhonor.
It didn’t occur to me that stage, film, and performance combat was such a thing in Vancouver but it is and members of this company are ardent in their passion for the craft of stage and film fighting. For those wishing to indulge, they offer workshops.
The play was written by a Halifax playwright, Karen Bassett, who is dedicated to the discipline of stage fighting. An inability to find good roles for women in this genre led her to write Heroine which has been enthusiastically received and performed across the country.
Overcome stage fright and find confidence in your unique voice.
