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 with The Academy of Fight Directors Canada, they have performed at Harvest Haus hosted by the Social Concierge and been invited to many fundraisers for independant performance companies. They have worked as fight choreographers for Caravan Farm Theatre, The Young People’s Opera Society, University of British Columbia, Capilano University, Instant Theatre and multiple 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
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. They are currently working with writer Roselyn Kelada-Sedra to premiere a new work in 2020.
