SPECIAL DCM WORKSHOP:  Playing To The Top Of Your Intelligence with Alex Fernie


This workshop will focus on using what you know to help play to the top of your intelligence in all of your scene work. We'll cover making real, grounded choices to create the game of the scene and using specifics based on the information that you have floating around in your brain to drive your scenes and make you and your fellow improvisers look like geniuses. Finally, your extensive knowledge of the flora and fauna of Madagascar and obscure Dr. Who episodes will be useful!

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.
