ooking for a quick-paced impromptu improv game? How about a round of “Clap & Freeze” – a fun-filled game for honing your verbal and non-verbal acting skills! All you is need is some space to move around in and at least 6 open-minded participants – the more, the merrier.
Recipe for Instant Drama
- Select two participants: One is the game leader, and the other is the follower. The selected leader should begin acting out a scene, and the follower has to react, e.g. the leader asks for the follower’s hand in marriage, and the follower either accepts or rejects the proposal.
- When any participant from the group has watched enough of this scene, they need to intervene by clapping – the signal for the leader and the follower to freeze immediately.
- The new participant becomes the new leader, taps one of the other participants on the shoulder and takes their place. Then the leader initiates a completely new scenario, e.g. turning the marriage proposal into an evening of drinking with the guys.
