I’m Watching You, Watching Me
This is an adapted Meisner exercise from Rachel Blackman. Sit opposite a partner on chairs, knees close or touching. Don’t break eye-contact and repeat the phrase “I’m watching you, watching me” back and forth. It’s okay to laugh. Hopefully this will get you to notice a lot of small gestures and facial expressions in the other player. Get people to try it with a couple of different people and to discuss it afterwards. Two minutes a time is about right.
