Part of a Whole: Activity (WHAT)
“Show, don’t tell.” “See what’s going on and join in.” “Become part of the whole!” As Viola says in the book, this group interaction should create flow and energy. Repeat the game until this takes place. Joining in with fun and gusto sets the tone for entering into all games.
Tension should be a natural part of the activity between players with¬out every scene ending in a conflict to make something happen (release can come out of agreement). This is not easily understood. A rope between players might set up opposite goals (conflict) in a tug-of-war, yet a rope be¬tween players pulling them all up a mountain could have similar tension with all pulling together towards the same goal. Tension and release are implicit in problem-solving.
