This is a warm up that tests the players ability to come up with justifications for a mime action. The leader will endow a player with a simple mime action like “brushing teeth.” This warm up is like high jumping it will always end in failure. As with most warm ups the goal is to fail with grace and laughter.
Invocation is an exercise that deeply explores the appearance and meaning of a simple object. The leader chooses an inanimate object for the players to invoke appearance, meaning and life into. Invocation has a very structured process.
Convergence is a warm up that focuses on listening, support, taking risks and getting a group in synch. The goal is to get two players to simultaneously say the same word without preparation. When it happens it is magical, however it can take a long time to happen.
