SPECIAL DCM WORKSHOP: Simplifying Game with Alex Fernie

People get scared of the term "playing the game," so let’s change that. This workshop will focus on demystifying game and helping you create scenes that play game in real, honest and fun ways. We'll cover creating clear games in openings and in organic scenes, as well as interesting heightening moves and support from the back line.

* 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.
