SPECIAL DCM WORKSHOP: AUSSIE RULES IMPROV with Ryan Karels

As Australian Rules Football is to every other fucking game played with an oblong ball, Aussie Rules Improv is to the normal improv we do stateside. Through guided scenework, learn the challenge and joy of this unique style. In Aussie Rules you literally cannot say 'no.' Everybody knows each other, even if you haven't met before, and everything has a nickname. Any disagreement can be resolved over a beer, and the only arguments are two "mates" "taking the piss" out of each other. There are no worries because Australian healthcare is ace. Enjoy cultural appropriation at its most constructive. (No fake accents or caricatures allowed.)

* 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 $55.
