I received an e-mail from the South Orange Performing Arts Center (“SOPAC“) with the subject line “Free Stage Fight Demo Friday Night.” I was initially confused but intrigued at the same time, so I found out that they’re hosting an event with Rick Sordelet, who is known as a “Fight Director,” meaning that he works in live theater productions, creating the visual and audible illusions of onstage fighting. This event takes place this Friday, and Sordelet will demonstrate some of his tricks-of-the-trade and show the skill and athleticism required to make a real-looking fight happen on stage.

However, the event is not taking place at SOPAC, but rather at Studio 509 Fitness in Maplewood, and they say one needs to call to make a reservation (since it is free – no tickets necessary).

Here’s a video interview with Rick Sordelet and you can see some of his methods in a few fight demos during the video:
