Big Blob is both an exercise and a warm up. This is the warm up version of this structure. The leader asks each player to walk across the stage to the other side. However, in their path is a giant blob of goo. The leader should describe a big blob of goo blocking the path of the player’s walk across the stage. The blob will have density, viscosity, visibility endowments that will impact how the players move through the blob.
The French Braid is a long form structure where off stage players indicate the start of a new scene. The last scene is signalled by the onstage entrance of the last offstage player. The braid begins as all scenes from the first wave are revisited in order as if time has passed.
The player that is front and center strikes a pose. Players join her one at a time striking complementary poses until a still photograph is created. The leader may suggest a photograph. More advanced players should be encouraged to build a photograph without discussion as an ensemble.
