Stark, angular shadows will fill the stage or screen. The isolated feel of modern cities. Conflicted anti-heroes and terse dialogue. Determined, beautiful, scheming women. Seedy settings, shadowy lighting, and a fatalistic tone. Costumes and props highly encouraged!
Please note, this is a highly visual form and may not be ideal for audio only participants.
