British Theatre Guide
"The fights, staged by Renny Krupinski, are messy and ugly, just as they should be, and very well realised."

"The climax of the show is a superb fight sequence with swords, sticks and fists choreographed by the great Renny Krupinski that is way above the standard of stage fighting normally expected in a pantomime. "

Royal Exchange, Manchester
"...frighteningly realistic work by fight director Renny Krupinski."

"Shaw’s direction is beautifully complemented by Renny Krupinski’s fight scenes which start as slapstick (complete with on-stage sound effects) but rapidly turn brutal..."

introduction

About Renny

Renny Krupinski is very much a renaissance man and a polymath with the highest credentials. He works as an Equity Registered fight director, fight co-ordinator, stunt co-ordinator and fight arranger for some of the most prestigious companies in the entertainment industry. His work in theatre, television and on film has won him many glowing reviews and plaudits from some of the leading directors and artistes in today’s profession. His regular work on television with award-winning mainstream companies like Hollyoaks, Emmerdale, Coronation Street, the BBC as well as theatrically with the RSC, Shakespeare’s Globe, Theatr Clwyd, West Yorkshire Playhouse, Glasgow Citizens Theatre, Oldham Coliseum, London’s West End, Home Manchester and the multi-awarded and lauded film Tyrannosaur has maintained his position at the very top of his profession; bringing his A-game to every job. 

Renny won a Manchester Evening News Best Supporting Actor award as an actor at the Royal Exchange, Manchester, and was nominated as The Stage’s Best Actor at the Edinburgh Festival. He has played some of the most demanding Shakespearian roles in the canon. He won the Dark Chat Best Director award for his production of Bare and, as a writer, won a coveted Scotsman Fringe First and The Michael Elliott prize in The Mobil Playwriting Competition.

His latest play The Alphabet Girl was selected for the P2S Festival and received glowing reviews from The Manchester Theatre Awards…so much so that Kaitlin Howard “The Alphabet Girl” was nominated and subsequently won a Best Fringe Performance award in the 2015 Manchester Theatre Awards and, on the strength of that, Kevin Shaw, artistic director of Oldham Coliseum has guaranteed performances of both Katie Crowder and The Alphabet Girl for his new season in the studio. Kaitlin then won the National Studio Theatre Award for Best Actress 2015 for her performance in Edinburgh as The Alphabet Girl. His new play The Bag Pixies will be premiered by Badapple Theatre in 2017.

Renny is a completely independent fight teacher unaligned with any organisation, academy or society concentrating purely on the teaching of knowledge for the next generation with his own unique expertise. He regularly teaches with Kaitlin Howard. He is a university lecturer in stage combat at Manchester Metropolitan University, has held positions of Chair with two leading teaching academies and was elected to serve on the British Actor’s Equity Stage Committee and the Equity Creative Team Specialist Committee, The Equity Register of Fight Directors and The Equity Register of Fight Directors Working Party.

Renny Krupinski’s technical skills are far-reaching and include senior grade in Iwama style aikido, qualified fencing coach, all horse work including horse drawn vehicles, wrestling, boxing, bare-knuckle fighting, rapier, smallsword, broadsword, knife, quarterstaff, falls, blood tricks, lifting and throws. As his business card says: Everything’s possible.
