C - POWERFUL WORDS
An introspective exercise which emphasises the subconscious resonance of words. It is important for finding words that can serve as the cornerstones of future stories.
Key words - Exploring starting with words.
Purpose - Basic playwriting.
Didactic materials - A flipchart.
Description - The exercise can be carried out after the previous ones (“Overlapping Issues”, “Flow of Words”) or on its own. The trainer asks participants to choose three words. If the exercise is conducted after the ones previously described, the choice will be among words related to the topics. If not, the words will be randomly chosen. In any case, the words selected should be among the ones the participant considers important or that refer to a theme the group chose to explore. The trainer suggests building a brief story of a few lines in which the three words must necessarily be present.
Duration - Approximately 20 to 30 minutes.
