Project Description

Action / Interaction / Transformation

One of the most gratifying games to play for me is Transformations. Finding new relationships in partnership with another player in a kaleidoscope kind of way is so invigorating.

No Urgency / No Motion / Heighten and Explore

The best thing is to wait for the relationship to emerge rather than let it devolve into a “Freeze Tag” type game. Take your time and go for real connection in No-Motion. The caveat here is not to jump to label an interaction and go for Yes, and… There should be a mutual discovery of a relationship and when that happens the relationship crystallizes. Then play a few beats of that scenario. The temptation then is to stay involved in this new relationship. Once it is established, find something to Explore and Heighten and let that lead you to the next transformation.

Definition: IMPROVISATION: Playing the game; setting out to solve a problem with no preconception as to how you will do it; permitting everything in the environment (animate or inanimate) to work for you in solving the prob¬lem; it is not the scene, it is the way to the scene; a predominate function of the intuitive; playing the game brings opportunity to learn theater to a cross-section of people; “playing it by ear”; process as opposed to result; not ad-lib or “originality” or “making it up by yourself”; a form, if under¬stood, possible to any age group; setting object in motion between play¬ers as in a game; solving of problems together; the ability to allow the acting problem to evolve the scene; a moment in the lives of people with¬out needing a plot or story line for the communication; an art form; trans¬formation; brings forth details and relationships as organic whole; living process.
