Leaving the Couch

Synonyms

Sofa

Introduction

This exercise focuses on non-verbal listening and getting in synch. Let’s get four players sitting on the couch.

Description

Once the players are sitting on the couch one of them begins a repetitive activity. In the beginning this could be a subtle hand tapping combined with a quiet noise. The other players on the couch are supposed to mimic the activity. Other players on the couch contribute actions such that the four are creating a fidgeting chorus line between themselves. Eventually the actions become stronger and stronger and the four simultaneously get up off the couch. Hence the name leaving the couch. Watch for people leading the exercise. Leaving the couch should represent a shared synergism.
