Dramatic Combat Finland is the biggest professional group in Finland in the field of dramatic violence and stunt work on stage or in film.
We hone our craft in collaboration with the Nordic Stage Fight Society, which is an umbrella organization of stage combat in the northern countries, and with many other societies from all over the world.
We have been organizing workshops in dramatic violence and offering our choreographic and performing services in Finland since 2007.

Please read the COVID-19 GUIDELINES before attending! Because most basic training tools and techniques for realistic stage combat must be done at close contact. Our training spaces are mostly indoor spaces and ventilation is as good as it gets. We try to make choreographic choices that avoid unnecessary close contact, but during most workshops it is not altogether possible.
