Scene 3 Ways

A great way to play with many different styles

Rules:

Team plays a short neutral scene. The team replays the scene 2 more times coloured with the elements of a particular style or genre.

Objectives:

To improvise within many different styles. Create and practice the understanding of using an element of a style to prove a section.

Comments:

Many of the scenes will end up as mimicry and parody of the style, however, this game is excellent for finding a style the team enjoys. Experiment with many different styles, so that the team gets a feel for exploring the conventions of each one. Sometimes those conventions will call for a radical departure from the original neutral scene, but attempt to retain the key structural elements – even as you play with their detail and presentation.
