about tate

Jason Paul Tate (he/him) splits time living and working in New York City and San Diego, CA. He recently played Rochefort in a production of Ken Ludwig’s Three Musketeers at Virginia Stage Company for which he also served as the associate fight director to Steve Rankin. Immediately prior, he directed fights, stunts and intimacy for Cleveland Playhouse’s sold-out run of The Play that Goes Wrong, directed by Melissa Rain Anderson.

This winter, Tate choreographed fights for Watch Night, a world premiere collaboration from Bill T. Jones, Marc Bamuthi Joseph, Tamar-kali and Lauren Whitehead for the new PAC-NYC. This summer, he will once again provide fight, movement direction and special effects design for the 87th season of The Lost Colony Outdoor Drama, directed by Jeff Whiting.

Tate continues to teach movement as a visiting professor at universities across the country; and as a founding instructor of the nation’s largest private stage combat training organization, Neutral Chaos. He is the current Vice President of the Society of American Fight Directors (SAFD).

Up next: Fight & Movement Direction for Noises Off @ Bucks County Playhouse, directed by Hunter Foster. Lead Instructor at Combat Certification Intensive at the Connecticut Theatre Exchange, and Lead Instructor for the National Stage Combat Workshop in Ruston, Louisiana.
