Tina Satter leads writing, performance, and directorial exercises and techniques that will be used to generate new performance writing and scene approaches —and can be applied to infuse projects already in process.

A collaborative and open environment allows participants to find unexpected ways to generate writing and directing techniques—and be in conversation with Tina on her work with Half Straddle and individual practice. 

Upon acceptance, you will be directed to pay by credit card online.
