Project Description

Add to an Activity and add Who

 This short example is enough to show how it’s done. Coach players to bring on their relationship along with an activity. Coming on and just announcing who you are is telling. Asking questions is permitted as long as it is apparent that Who is established without telling.

Some students find it very difficult to keep from “writing a play.” They do not enter into relationships but manipulate their fellow students and the stage environment for their own purposes. This “playwriting” within the group violates the group agreement, prevents process with the other players, and keeps the user from achieving an expanding creative personal experience. Playwriting is not scene improvisation. Scene improvisation can only evolve out of group agreement and playing.
