Class Description

Level Four dives deep into an advanced form (e.g. Evente, MonoScene, Deconstruction, Sleepover, Harold+, The Movie) and works on that form with the singular focus need to create a great show. If you are the kind of person who over thinks your long form, then this is the long form for you. Busy Town is a narrative structure where we will practice building a strong foundation at the beginning in order to free up the rest of our time for non-stop party fun*. Build strong characters, be inspired by your games, use a tag out like a Jedi master -- think less, do more, get busy. *disclaimer: fun may stop at 25 minutes
