Drama Game: Emotional Transfer


Mar 7, 2017 Drama Games , 3 Comments

Type: Improv, Creativity

Purpose: A simple improv game for more advanced actors.


1. Ask two players to take the stage.

2. Assign two different emotions to each of the players.

3. Ask the audience for a setting and conflict, and have the two players improvise a scene starting with the emotions they were assigned.

4. Over the course of the scene, the players must gradually display less of their own emotion and more of the emotion of the other player. 

5. The scene is complete when the players are only displaying the emotion that the opposite player began with.

Comment below with emotion or scene suggestions!

    What a cold idea. Some scenarios my students and I have found tried and true are:
    -shopping in a retail clothing store (perhaps the customer is needy and the clerk is overwhelmed until of course, they switch).
    -getting a tour of a country (we chose France) from a snooty native tour guide, the American tourist being over-excited about every little detail.
    -being in a band together. band arguments, the stress of touring and working out the schedule with tour manager, ect.

Even though I ask them to perform your activities in both Kannada and English languages they nail it every single time.. thanks to you.. :)
