This improv game is in the following improv game categories:
nThis one is an extension of Sculptors
. Divide the class in 2 groups,
same number of players in every group.
One group is clay, and they close their eyes. The other group are sculptors.
The sculptors build one sculpture out of all the `clay` players. The sculpture is finished when all of the players touch someone else (so all are connected to the sculpture). The artists cannot `push` the clay into position - they need to `pull` parts of the clay into position without actually pulling. `Pulling` is
done by touching a body part with an open hand, and then moving the hand about. They `clay` players need to `follow` the moving open hands.
As soon as the sculpture is finished, the sculptors moves away, and re-build the
statue, themselves now becoming clay. The (original) clay players keep their eyes closed. As soon as the imitation
sculpture is finished, the clay players, eyes still closed, try to find `themselves`
in the imitation. When everybody has found themselves
the game is over, and
the clay players assess to what extent they found `themselves` and to what extent the imitation is exact.
