SPECIAL DCM WORKSHOP: The Spokane with Ben Rameaka

The Spokane! This long form will allow you the pleasure of immediate gratification. Through gifting, listening and support you can see character development appear before your eyes using tag outs, cut toe, and cut backs all built around a central narrative. The Spokane (sometimes called the Delicate Flower, sometimes the Family Guy) is a long form structure that travels in real time along a single scene while cutting to (and cutting back from) various specifics about certain characters as we learn more about them through the original scene. Imagine the hub of a wheel with several spokes extending from it. The form allows us to see and do exactly what we are talking about while continually returning to a grounded scene that facilitates more and funnier behavior.

PLEASE NOTE: THERE ARE NO REFUNDS FOR THESE DCM WORKSHOPS. READ THE POLICY CAREFULLY BEFORE REGISTERING AND ENROLLING!
Maximum class size is 16.

* You must be listed on the DCM website as a performer in a group from out of town to enroll.  The registrar will check for your name and if you are not listed when you enroll, you will be removed from the workshop and lose $50.
