Mission Statement

Babes With Blades Theatre Company uses stage combat to place women and their stories center stage. Through performance, script development, training and outreach, our ensemble creates theatre that explores the wide range of the human experience, and cultivates broader perspectives in the arts community and society as a whole.

Description

An all-woman stage combat ensemble founded by Dawn "Sam" Alden in 1997, Babes With Blades gives women in Chicago an opportunity to celebrate their training and talent in stage combat. Over the years, The Babes have performed one showcase, five full shows, a live chess match, and countless outreach programs, as well as hosting stage combat workshops. In addition, The Babes proudly sponsor quarterly programs designed to help women defend themselves against violence as part of the ensemble's mission: (to) celebrate the historical role of the woman warrior and her modern evolution. Currently, The Babes regularly appear at Vaudeville Underground, a monthly variety show, located at the corner of Altgeld and Talman in Logan Square.
