A Little Bit Of Our Journey So Far...

Affair of Honor began with Jackie and Nathania creating staged fights to perform for events and fundraisers throughout the city. Both certified actor combatants and board members with Fight Directors Canada, they have performed at Harvest Haus hosted by the Social Concierge and been invited to multiple fundraisers for independant performance companies. They have worked as Fight Directors for Caravan Farm Theatre, Urban Ink Productions, Shuswap Theatre, Studio 58, University of British Columbia, Capilano University, Instant Theatre, Geekenders, The Young People’s Opera Society and several independent films while also holding their own workshops and providing private coaching sessions.


They debuted their first theatre production of Qui Nugyen’s Soul Samurai, at the Vancouver Fringe Festival Dramatic Work Series in 2017 and a very successful remount at Studio 1398 in 2018.  The Soul Samurai Remount in 2018 was recognized by the theatre community and Affair of Honor recieved their first Jessie Richardson Theatre Award Nomination for  Significant Artistic Achievement for Outstanding fusion of kinetic dance and martial arts fight choreography within the small theatre category.


They developed and produced an improvised fight episodic inspired by Romeo and Juliet titled House of Arms in 2018. Heroine by Karen Bassett was the first show to tour, in Vancouver in July 2018 to the 2018 Edmonton International Fringe Festival. August 2019 saw the premiere of the company's first original written work Playthings, that premiered at Pacific Theatre and then toured to the Edmonton Fringe Festival.  Affair of Honor received their first artist residency with Presentation House Theatre and produced a version of Playthings in April 2021 using 8 foot ramps inspired by the dance company Diavolo.   Continuing the development of Playthings they are working on revamping the script for the TYA and Public Market as proud PHT Hub Members.


They worked with writer Roselyn Kelada-Sedra on a new work in St. Catherines, ON with Suitcase In Point in 2022. As well, they were very excited to work alongside Jovanni Sy, producing, acting and designing fight choreography for his original script and Kung fu epic The Five Vengeances(T5V).   This production of T5V did its first technical dramaturgical workshop with Chimerik in November 2021 and was presented as the season opener at the Shadbolt Center for the Arts in September 2022.  At the same time they co-presented with Geekenders and Producer/Playwright Fairlith Harvey on her original work Kill The Ripper which premiered in Vancouver at the Rio and in North Vancouver at Presentation House Theatre.  


In January 2023 Affair of Honor guest directed for Bishops University producing Qui Nguyen’s She Kills Monsters as well as semestered guest instructors for the students. January 2024 they workshopped with Playwright and Dramaturg Heidi Damayo on her new commissioned play with Night Swimming called Angels Unawares. Most recently, Affair of Honor developed their second original piece, Multi-Vs for the Edmonton Fringe festival in August of 2023. Multi-Vs is currently in redevelopment for its Vancouver premiere as a part of the 2024 rEvolver Festival presented by Up in The Air Theatre. They are looking forward to Fight Directing and working with for the first time with Pi Theatre and Project X in Kamloops this summer.
