This improv game is in the following improv game categories:
An excellent exercise for Look and Listen
. One player initiates a scene. Take your time establishing Platform
. A second player joins the scene; this player may 'come in', or alternatively he may have started on scene with the initiator. After the initiator has spoken his first line, the joiner repeats exactly what the initiator said. Then we interrupt.
Ask the joiner what was established prior to the first line, as well as what the first line established. This slows down the scene so the joiner gets the time to fully grasp what his scene partner has given him. This goes both ways - what did the initiator get from the joiner (non-verbally)?
Then re-run the start of the scene and let it develop.
