Engage your community by bringing forward its stories and truths.
Dan’s playful exercises help people explore and express themselves through art.
There’s no pre-requisite—whatever level of experience in theater and writing, all are welcome and encouraged to participate.
Add a workshop to any performance to deeply integrate Dan’s visit to your community.
In this one-day workshop, participants will explore themselves deeply; write narratives with truth, honesty, and compassion; and can present them at an open-mic event in the evening.
Maximum Workshop Participants: No limit.
In this two-day intensive, Dan guides participants through the process of creating short plays, including exercises in playwriting, acting, and performance. The participants will also collaborate in small groups to create staged readings and performances of their plays.
The compressed nature of the intensive teaches participants about collaboration, teamwork, communication, time management, and quick thinking.
Maximum Workshop Participants: 24.
