This improv game is in the following improv game categories:
2 actors start an improvized scene. At any point in time another player can call Freeze.
This player then tags out one of the 2 actors, and takes his place. Both
players then start a new scene, justifying their positions.
The way this improv
game is played quite often goes a bit against good improv, as many groups hardly
take the time to develop a story line. If played this way, it`s more a game of wit, and you
would probably use it early in a show as an audience (and player) warm-up.
Alternatively, you can take your time and play every scene for several minutes, see what
develops, and only at the end of each scene tag into another scene.
To avoid preconceptions, see Blind Freeze . See also Space Jump for
an extension of this game.
