Type:  Activity.

Purpose:

  • Help build an ensemble.

Procedure: 

  • Group stands in circle and all come in close with hands stretched into middle of the circle.
  • Everyone grabs two hands – not the person next them, and not both hands of the same person.
  • Tell the students they must untie the knot without anyone ever letting go of their hands.
  • Counsel them to go very slowly and be very gentle.
  • Do it once allowing the students to talk and once in silence.

“It’s not often that I genuinely laugh at material written for this age group or genuinely get a lump in my throat. It’s so rewarding watching my younger actors perform material that doesn’t write down to them.”
