Welcome to the Theatre Dictionary’s conversation about the term fight call.

On fight call’s official page, we define the term as a special rehearsal where actors in a fight scene meet to go over their movements. But now we want to know what the term fight call means to you. You can use the comments section to tell us.

— Have you ever participated in a fight call? Did the director choreograph the movements or was a stage combat specialist brought in?

— If so, did anyone get hurt? What happened?

If you’d like to make a video of your own about fight call, then we’d love to hear from you! Just email us through our contact page. Tell us about yourself and why you want to make a video. We’ll be in touch ASAP and give you details on how to add your video to the Theatre Dictionary!
