  • You can use movement, speech, body language, anything!
  • Let go of trying to look a certain!
  • The point is to let go of any frames
  • Complete improvisation, be spontaneous
  • Do whatever comes through without filtering or judging yourself
  • Liberate yourself
  • Each time someone finishes give them a loud cheering applause
BECOME A CHARACTER

  • Shift every 30 seconds
  • One character for 2 min and dive deep

ANIMAL SOUNDS

STORY TELLING

GIBBERISH TALKING
  • Gibberish is communicating in sounds, not words
  • You can add movement and gestures
  • Communicate in non rational sounds
  • You can take turns and have a gibberish conversation
