B - ONE WORD, ONE BODY

Mainly serves the purpose of exploring a theme that will be developed theatrically in a nonverbal way within the group.


Key words - Exploring starting with the body.

Purpose - Exploring a theme in a nonverbal manner.

Description - The group is standing in the room and participants are distributed around the space in a homogenous manner (like they are after having stopped the raft exercise). One of the participants says a word. It can be a verb or an object noun. The important thing is that the word is expressed without hesitation. After five seconds the trainer gives a signal (for example, a hand clap) and all the participants immediately portray that word in a fixed but dynamic manner like a statue.

Duration - Approximately 20 to 25 minutes.
