Next Level Monoscenes with Julie Brister 

This class will take what we already know about the Monoscene and turn it on it’s head by blending it with other forms, different genres, history, and our own fabulous lives. We’ll focus on doing better, more specific space work and be more physically engaged which helps us make active choices. You’ll be challenged to play creatures outside of your character wheelhouse all in a safe, supportive environment. You’ll finish this class having more confidence in your abilities in this very challenging form.

Class meets at UCB Sunset Training Center; Room #222
