Note[edit]

"staged combat" or "combat on stage" sound more correct. "stage combat" sounds as if either stages were fighting amongst themselves, or as if stages were used offensively. This is similar to "horsed archer" vs. "horse archer". I realize usage tends to favour the less correct form, but that is no reason for an encyclopedia to do likewise. dab () 13:50, 5 May 2006 (UTC)

  • I disagree. "Stage combat" is not incorrect common usage of an adjective-noun combination. It is a vernacular noun phrase in itself. As such, it amounts to a technical term, which is recognized and used not only by laymen but by the majority of actors and fight choreographers. Just as a practical consideration, the vast majority of people seeking information on this topic would probably type in either "stage combat" or "fight choreaography."

This article needs examples! 62.194.170.62 23:50, 6 November 2006 (UTC)

  • It also lacks references, which generally disqualifies it from being B-Class. Badbilltucker 19:31, 15 December 2006 (UTC)

Could someone put more pro wrestling facts on this PLEASE!! Because I want to know their secrets!, Thank You, Mr.E 2007

split[edit]

this should probably be split, into at least

  • theatre
  • film
  • live performance (reenactment)

dab (𒁳) 09:41, 13 March 2007 (UTC)

Some of the information might split off, but there should be one basic entry tracing the development of stage combat as a general topic, before film or reenactment groups existed.

Why is it not feasible to section these aspects as need be? It would be better to have a decent-sized article on the whole topic rather than several stub/start quality articles. Splits are generally reserved for sections that metastasize beyond a reasonable length. Girolamo Savonarola 20:59, 17 September 2007 (UTC)

External links[edit]

We shouldn't allow links to individual "combat reenactment" groups, since there are probably hundreds of them, and there is no sort of quality or notability control. Stage combat academies or associations are probably fair game, but individual groups will have to argue notability from film, theatre, or reviews or recommendations from notable sources. dab (𒁳) 09:41, 13 March 2007 (UTC)

richard tarlton was not in shakespeare's acting company - he died before it was set up

Agreed. Most if this is spammy. See Wikipedia:External_links for more info. All links have been removed as none seem to contain verifiably accurate information and most are just random businesses or groups. Everyone, please do not re-add to this section without reading Wikipedia:External_links first.Jesse Crouch (talk) 21:52, 26 December 2009 (UTC)
