Action and Justify
In pairs, one improviser does a physical action. Their partner justifies what they are doing, and they agree on what has been established.
Gerald: Puts arms above his head
Susanne: We’re so ready for this synchronised dive.
Gerald: Yes, I’m so happy we made it to the Olympic final.
This exercise is great for Yes And. One player makes a physical offer, the other accepts and builds on it.
First learnt from Patti Styles and then adapted by Hoopla.
This exercise is in the following categories:
Support and Teamwork
Agreement / Accepting
Yes And / Accept and Build
Movement / Physicality
