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.
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.
The circle is now a single entity, an Amoeba. The leader gets the group of players to carefully move about the room like a single celled creature. Amoebas do not move fast, so this one should not either. The leader should encourage the blob to move from one end of the room to the other. The amoeba cannot break apart and must bend itself around objects.
