José Pérez IV (PGH)

José Pérez IV is a fight choreographer, theatre maker, teacher, and performer. His movement training began in athletics and martial arts, going on to study physical-based acting and stage combat at NYU’s Experimental Theatre Wing. The focus of José’s work is on “fight theatre”, live shows which feature stage combat as the primary performance medium. Additionally, he is incredibly fascinated by site-specific theatre; having made shows in a moving car, a shower, as a jogging aide, and at the Metropolitan Museum of Art NYC. Advanced Actor Combatant Society of American Fight Directors, MFA in Performance Pedagogy U of Pitt.

About José's Work

“All the Fights!” is a scrappy stage combat experiment. A conglomeration of fight theatre research over 10 years, borrowing from Hollywood stunts and video games. Investigating how to increase the perceived weight and percussive power of strikes through padding, sound editing, and manipulating time. There will be sweat, there will be many weapons, there will likely be a knife fight choreographed to rock music. “All the Fights!” aims to present sophisticated stage combat techniques in an accessible, entertaining fashion. It will feel almost as if they gave a well-funded movement residency to a person who still plays with action figures.

A Christmas Carol - A Radio Play by Philip Grecian

A Christmas Carol - A Radio Play by Philip Grecian

  • Greater Pittsburgh Masonic Center (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Join us on December 10th and 11th to see Ghost Light Theater Company bring Charles Dickens' beloved Christmas classic to life in the form of a staged radio play.

It's the 1940s - the golden age of radio. We open as the actors gather in the studio of WVOP. The familiar ON AIR light illuminates. As the narrator begins to tell the story, his voice gradually transforms to that of the grumpy Ebenezer Scrooge. You'll be transfixed as you watch this small ensemble cast give voice to all of the familiar characters of the story. 

You'll watch the sound effects artists recreate the sounds of wind, fire, footsteps, chains and more, and the live music will make you feel like you're sitting around the table sharing dinner with the Cratchits.
