Combatant

RESUME

Victor started training in stage combat in freshman year at the Boston Conservatory at Berklee. He started with Adam McLean, a teacher associated with The Society of American Fight Directors. (SAFD). Sophomore year Victor then trained with his mentor Angela Jepson, another SAFD teacher. As a result of her training Victor was certified in 3 weapons in the SAFD arsenal and created an original show called RISE. He has since been the assistant fight choreographer on 2 professional productions and was the fight director in Central Square Theater’s Vanity Fair.

 

Once the COVID pandemic began, Victor was the spearhead for a new way of teaching for stage combat around the US. PROJECT: Spectre was created in order to be able to continue working on fight choreography and honing his skills whilst not having an opponent present. Using the sound of fights and choreography that already exist in popular media and timing all of the moves to that baseline, Victor was able to fight invisible opponents (Specters). Therefore, giving the illusion that someone is indeed present. As a result of this, stage combat professors around the nation assigned this project to their students.
