Drama Game: Making Pictures



The students stand outside a performance space.

One student runs into the space, forms his or her body into a statue and
announces what she is, as in “I’m a tree.”

Instantly the next person runs on and forms something else
in the same picture. “I’m a bench under the tree.”

The next person adds to the picture.

“I’m a man’s or woman’s bum on the bench.”

“I’m a dog barking at the man or woman.”

“I’m the newspaper the person is sleeping under.”

Etc., until the whole group is part of the picture.

Start again.

And again.

Coach this to go very, very fast. There is no time to think–just go!

If there are two teams, they alternate.
