Interview with Actor and Fight Coreographer Derek Conley
Until You Walk the Path, You Don’t Know Where it Goes will be hosting actor and fight choreographer, Derek Conley on March 7 at 5 pm eastern.
Derek's late teens saw him becoming a featured performer in Human Combat Chess matches and performed stage combat fights in front of thousands of spectators for several years, while also performing a variety of main characters in the same productions. He went on to perform in various Renaissance Festivals, Medieval Faires, and Pirate Shows all over Florida and the Florida Keys. Derek also performed in several independent films and took the opportunity to work on improvisational acting skills due to the venues in which he most commonly performed. When he joined the United States Marine Corps, he took a break from performing for a few years as he pursued his training; the skills learned while becoming a Marine serve him still. After his time with the USMC, Derek returned to performing locally with the Bay Area Renaissance Festival in Tampa, Florida, as a featured stage combatant as well as portraying one of the main villains of the show for several years. He also became the Co-Director of the Bay Area's Chess Match, assisting with the teaching and choreography of a cast of over 30 actors and combatants.
