Character Mirror Circle

Character Mirror Circle


One person stands in the middle of a small circle and does a monologue in character.

Everyone on the outside attempts to speak and move along with them at the same time. Not echoing, but doing it at the same time. They attempt to copy their body language, tone of voice, emotion, words and behaviour, at exactly the same time.

It creates a feedback loop where the person in the middle of the circle can find new parts of their character.
