The players start an open scene and the leader will freeze the narrative and literally asks the audience players “what happens next.” The player doing the scene will immediately jump onto the offer given and continue until frozen again.
Trifecta is a fun and fast paced exercise for building environment, narrative or characters. One player jumps into the circle and exclaims and mimes themselves as some kind of noun. They are quickly followed by two more players who complete the trifecta.
This is a structured narrative exercise. Each sentence in the narrative begins with the exact words described. The first sentence starts with the classic “Once upon a time.” The player need only contribute a small opening element to the story. For example, “once upon a time there was a dog that chased cars.” The next sentence, supplied by the other player, could be “and every day the dog chased cars.”
