Argent Combat

Argent Combat is an organization of students, performers, choreographers, and instructors of Theatrical Violence & Stage Combat, the specialized techniques in theatre designed to create the illusion of physical combat without causing harm to the performers.

Our organization is dedicated to promoting safety and fostering the excellence and proficiency of action-oriented entertainment. Our objective is to uphold these values, to encourage safe techniques for performers and enthusiasts, to adapt styles of historical and modern forms of combat to dynamic theatrical performances, to provide artists with the tools they need to develop confidence in their autonomy, and to expand theatre’s influence by engendering new students and audiences who enjoy the expression of stories and emotions through theatrical violence.

In furtherance of these goals, Argent Combat routinely offers workshops and ongoing classes in a variety of disciplines all over Philadelphia, and members can be found attending Regional and National Workshops all over North America.

We are committed to the policy that all students shall have equal access to programs without regard to race, color, creed, religion, national origin, sex, age, marital status, disability, public assistance status, veteran status, or sexual orientation, except in those cases where specific physical limitations prohibit participation in performing the required skills in a manner safe to themselves or to their participants.
