This game emphasizes cooperation and support of an idea. A participant’s contribution is validated by becoming the inspiration of the next person’s offer.

  1. The participants stand just outside the prescribed performance space (a circle or an end of the room). The first participant enters, forms the shape of a tree with his/her body and says, “I am a tree.”
  2. The next participant adds to the picture by taking a position in relation to the last thing that was said. For example, “I am the bench under the tree,” and taking on a physical shape of that object.
  3. The next one might say, “I am the squirrel climbing on the bench”.
  4. And so on.
  5. Once all the participants have been added, the first person takes on a new shape, says, “I am a…” (Car or Classroom, or bedroom…) and the game continues until all participants have had a second turn.
