This afternoon we tried an exercise that I video-ed so that even if your’e not here, you can give it a try.
Just try to watch this clip. Watch carefully and try to figure out what’s going on:
Now try to watch the other half of the group:
What’s going on in each? What similarities and differences do you see in the groups? How do people adapt and adopt different roles/characters?
The group was divided in half and each was instructed ‘to copy exactly what you see on the screen without speaking. Don’t stop no matter what happens and don’t make noise.’ They were then shown clips from Faster Pussycat Kill! Kill! while the other half of the group tried to figure out what was going on in the group, in the story, with the characters, etc. The groups then reversed roles and the second acted out a scene from The Wicker Man.
If you’re a participant, please add a comment and let me know your thoughts on how it felt, what you noticed, etc.
These were (approximately) the scenes the groups were acting out:
