Jason Paul Tate (he/him) splits time living and working in New York City and San Diego, CA. He recently provided movement and fight direction for Henry V directed by Johanna McKeon, now running at The Old Globe; and just finished performances in the ensemble of Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk at the Metropolitan Opera. Prior to that, he directed fights for The Lost Colony Outdoor Drama, directed by Jeff Whiting and for a production of Sweat at River & Rail Theatre for Director Laura Dupper. In the spring of this year, Jason directed a highly physical production of Alice in Wonderland, set in his native Appalachia and adapted by the Guinn Twins for their company, Havoc Movement.
Despite recently completing his Visiting Faculty appointment at Florida State University, Jason continues to teach movement as an adjunct professor across the country; and as a founding instructor of the nation’s largest private stage combat training organization, Neutral Chaos.
