This week’s photo challenge theme of “fray” is good timing for me since I just worked with the Springs Ensemble Theatre on their production of Art. There is a fight scene in the play and the guys put in a good amount of time practicing the fight choreography to make sure the altercation looked real without resulting in any actual injuries. During one rehearsal, I put my camera into burst mode to get some action shots.
Before each performance, they’d do a run through or two on this part to make sure they really had it nailed – that’s the part called “fight call.” I’m happy to report that throughout the run, no one was injured for real, but boy did it look intense. (You just have to mentally erase some of the grinning to imagine the performances.)
