Event & Performance

Our veteran performers will create the perfect balance of entertainment and fascinating history at any corporate function. Whether you want a pair of swordsmen to fight their way through your conference keynote, an exciting duel to accent your corporate party, or an informative demonstration of technique and history, Academie Duello can provide.

Academie Duello offers three kinds of entertainment packages:

Theatrical Entertainment

A thrilling live duel customized specially for your guests and theme will break the ice and create an exceptional highlight to your event. We offer numerous theatrical packages that vary in performance length, number of actors and number of weapons used.

Historical Demonstration

Have us bring weapons and armour from throughout European history to your corporate event where we’ll weave a enrapturing blend of demonstration, lecture, and captivating story. Your guests will have the opportunity to handle swords, try on helmets, and see a demonstration of historic sword fighting techniques in action.

Workshop & Performance

Make your corporate party one to remember by combining a performance with the opportunity for your guests to try out a bit of swordplay for themselves. Our versatile instructors will bring all the equipment needed to put on a show and then teach a short lesson on the art and skills of the sword.
