Listen to a piece of music and make a list of the words it makes you think of. Each pick a word and create a short movement to represent it. Then merge the three movements together to make a kind of physical machine. Play the piece of music in the background as you perform your linked movements.
This exercise works really well to get you moving to a rhythm and to create unity in your movements. It's also a good game to establish ideas if you're creating a devised piece or a longer piece of theatre. There is no text involved, forcing the participants to use only their bodies.
I was listening to a hip-hop track that had no lyrics. Our list of words was:
My move was two thrust-punches. I combined this with my team-mates movements and we ended up with a street fight. We repeated it several times to the music and our audience cheered. :-) Try it out!
