This improv game is in the following improv game categories:
Excellent introductory exercise for building environments and Platform
. All players in 2
rows. 2 facing
players play the exercise, the others watch.
Player 1 sets a (part of a) platform by miming a door. As soon as player 2 has
about where player 1 might be, player 2 steps into the scene and offers
a line of dialog, expressing where we are. Player 2 answers player 1,
acknowledging player 1`s offer. This ends the scene.
The audience should know after these 2 lines of dialog where the players
are, and who they are, or what their relationship is to one another.
`Doors` can be anything that separates one physical location from another.
Players can mime real doors, but also gates, curtains, you name it. Encourage
players to try out as many types of `doors` as possible. Use sound to
enhance the platform, e.g. a door in a submarine makes a different kind of
noise than an elevator door.
