Objective: teamwork, observation, association
Summary: to copy a movement and sound
Duration: 10 minutes
Number of participants: groups of 15 people
Description of the activity:
Everyone stands in a big circle. One person starts off by passing on a movement and sound to his right-hand neighbor. This person immediately passes on the same movement and sound to his neighbor. In this way, the movement travels around the circle. When the movement has gone around the whole circle once, every participant may make a change to it (amplifying or toning down the movement and sound or simply making a minor change.)
Tips & directions:
Make sure that the participants do not start messing around from the start and changing the movement and/or sound straightaway. The idea is that they accept and copy an offer (in this case a movement and sound). There are endless variations to this exercise.
Pass on a movement and a sound to a random person who then passes on a completely different movement and sound to someone else. This exercise is all about speed. Encourage people to also alternate big movements and sounds with very modest ones.
