SPECIAL DCM WORKSHOP: THE INVOCATION with Neil Casey
What if I told you there was an opening for your Harolds that was watchable, theatrical, and instantly demanded commitment from you as a performer? What if it was also effective for brainstorming premises and was also basically trippy witchcraft? Would you want to have it explained by someone who really loves it and then try it a few times yourself? Then this workshop is for you.
PLEASE NOTE: THERE ARE NO REFUNDS FOR THESE DCM WORKSHOPS. READ THE POLICY CAREFULLY BEFORE REGISTERING AND ENROLLING

* 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.
