Disclosure:  Rehearsals will operate under the Chicago Theatre Standards, also known as the #NotInOurHouse movement. 'When creative environments are unsafe, both the artist and the art can become compromised. Spaces that produce 'raw' material can veer into unsafe territory if there are no procedures for prevention, communication, and when necessary, response. This document seeks not to define artistry, prescribe how it is created, value one kind of work over another, or stand as a legal document. It seeks rather to create awareness and systems that protect the human in the art – to foster safe places to do dangerous things.
Fight choreography will be used in this production.  It will be choreographed, rehearsed, and performed up to SAFD code.
