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.

“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.”
