Best Fight Direction for HALFWAY BITCHES GO STRAIGHT TO HEAVEN / By Stephen Adly Guirgis / Directed by John Ortiz / ATLANTIC / LABYRINTH Fall 2019
The Drama Desk nominated UnkleDave’s Fight-House was founded by David Anzuelo. His high quality of fight direction led him to work for some of the best theater and indie-film makers. Combining his training as an actor, director, and martial artist, Anzuelo brings a unique approach to both fight-choreography and sexual content stage violence. His core team consists of Sean Griffin, Rocio Mendez, Gerry Rodriguez, and Aldo Uribe. Together, they form a collective of fight/intimacy directors concerned with the integrity of the story and how the violence fits into the piece as a whole. Anzuelo and his Fight-House bring an inclusive perspective to work and don’t shy away from the hard hitting truth of stage violence.
