Improv & Comedy

Poets with Feeling

Three or four players are involved. The moderator asks the audience to provide a random sentence. Additionally, he lets each of the three or four players have an emotion. The players spread out on the stage and take up a pose in which they freeze. One after the other now steps forward and has the task of creating a spontaneous poem starting with the sentence they were provided, or giving a monologue in the form of rhyming verses. The player also remains the whole time in the emotion they were given. At the end of the monologue the player returns again to the back and "freezes".

The emotions expressed should represent a balance between contrasting positive and negative feelings.

The game can be run as a poetry slam.
