SUNDAY, Sept 5
4pm - 6pm Jill Bernard (of Drum Machine and SWITCH) - Truth & Beauty - Hideout Upstairs
In this workshop, Jill Bernard will take you through a series of exercises that inject your work with a little bit of truth and beauty. Having the ability to create improv that is honest and vulnerable adds another layer to your work, a little bit of cake underneath your frosting to take your work from light entertainment to something with resonance. Please wear closed toe shoes to this workshop.
