The music is Earth Wind & Fire's "In The Stone".

This scene was conceived as a modern dance piece utilizing a modern fencing sallé as its backdrop. A tragic love triangle about two young fencers whose "love is written in the stone." In this case the stone doubles as a headstone, giving it an ironic twist. It was performed as part of the community theatre version of "...and they fight!", presented at the Kansas City Fringe Festival in 2007.

The bulk of the choreography for the three principles includes two sword hits for each beat of the song, making for some very difficult and intricate swordplay. Smallsword combat is typically light and fast, most similar to sport fencing with epee.

The fight scene was inspired by and choreographed for this song by Richard Buswell.

2007's "...and they fight!" was created as a sample market test for a much larger and more professional fight show conceived of by Richard Buswell.

As of this writing, Richard is seeking investors for a longer touring version of the snippet you have seen.
