Rhythm with Chairs
Five actors, with one chair each. Each actor places his body in some kind of relationship to his chair, making a still image involving body and chair. The workshop leader numbers each image – 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. Then as the actors move around the room, the workshop leader calls out a number, and all the actors must immediately assume the image which corresponds to that number. After a few times, the workshop leader starts saying two numbers at a time, and the actors must try to make both images. Then three at a time, and so on.
