Club Atenea 2 - Working as a team

1. Warming-up exercise: walk in a straight line at different speed. Fill the space changing direction when you feel like.

2. Water, air, fire and wind
Improvisation at different levels in space : standing, sitting, kneeling, squatting. Identify your movement and your body with an element of nature: earth, fire, water or air.

3.Irish jewels

4. Tic-toc
This is a nice exercise to build up your confidence and your concentration. In a circle the teacher passes around counterclockwise an object which is called a TIC. The dialogue has to be said as follows:
- “This is a TIC”
- “A what? “
- “A TIC”


Next person repeats the same but the name has always to be said by the person who started the game.
- “This is a TIC”
- “A what? “
- “A what?”
- “A TIC”
- “A Tic”
- “A Tic”
It is only at the moment that the person gets the name of the object that he/she can hold it in his/ her hand.

The game gets more complicated when a TOC is introduced in the other direction so at one moment both objects meet each other and if you are not focus you may easily lose your way.


5. In a circle we played
- “Good Day Madge”
- “Good Day Madge”
- “Say, Good Day to Madge, Madge”
Every time anyone makes a mistake he’s assigned another name: Charlene, Harold and Bouncer (you have to bounce while you are saying your text).


6. In pairs improvise a situation where there is a conflict and you have to find the solution to that conflict.

7. Write on a piece of paper one saying, one emotion, one movement and one place. Improvise a scene where all these elements are present.


8. Later, we devoted some time to read the newly arrived plays of:
Waiting for Godot, Samuel Beckett
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time (based on a novel by Mark Haddon).
A Midsummer-night Dream, William Shakespeare.
