Status is the key to great improvisation
In pairs, create a still image where one of you has a higher status than the other. Show your image to the others and let them guess who is “high” and who is “low”.
- Discuss why there may be areas of disagreement
- Make another image showing high and low status in a different way
- Try to make an image where you have equal status and see if the onlookers agree!
Watch the wonderful video below presented by the talented Toby Parks from the theatre company that has made me laugh the most (ever) ‘Spymonkey’ for some more brilliant games based on Status – including Status Walk, Chorus Monster, Die Servant and Status Cards!
