Drama GameType:  Ensemble Building.

Purpose:

  • Encourage comfortability among the group.
  • Encourage trust.

Procedure: 

  • Arrange the students in close circles (6-8 students at most).
  • One brave volunteer goes to the middle, arms crossed over chest.
  • When the student is ready, they may fall forward or backward and then be gently ‘passed’ around the circle.
  • Keep the circle in very tight to begin with so students can be passed slowly.
  • Still insist on all students being in “ready balanced position” at all times.
  • Really encourage every student to go – this is key for creating a group that feels equally involved and responsible for one another.

Reflection:

  • What did it feel like to rely on someone else? To be responsible for someone else?
