This improv game is in the following improv game categories:
This is at times a physical Warm-up
, a physical association game, and
a game for character work. The game is played individually but all players
can do this simultaneously.
All players mill about the room. At any point the trainer yells "Yes!",
at which point all players `jump` into a position. Trainer can (but does not
have to) sidecoach by
shouting `direction` (see Fast Food Laban ) like `horizontal`, `up`, `down`,
`sideways`, `big`, `small`, `light`, `heavy`.
The idea then is to let the position into one has jumped inspire the player
to a character, a situation. The inspiration comes from associating the position with, erm, well, whatever comes to mind.
Association Jump for an extension of this exercise.
