In PINK Short Form, we learn to play without so many words. In some improv games we secretly signal to our partners what they need to say to keep us out of trouble. In other games we use gibberish to heighten the players’ struggle (which also heightens the fun for the audience). The Short Form games we learn in PINK include Foreign Film, Location/Object/Weapon (LOW), Excuses, and many others.
GREEN Short Form focuses on space and object work. We don’t have props and costumes; no scenery or recorded soundscape. To lure our audience into our stories, we rely on the way we handle imaginary objects and the environment. The Short Form games we learn in GREEN include Freeze Tag, Lines from a Box, One-minute Fairy Tale among many others.
