The Break Into the Story
Whenever you want to use words in an improv, there is a whole world of meaning and style that opens up to you. Kind of overwhelming! – and often you find yourself being stuck in not even knowing where to start. (This is where I will bring the non-scientific statistic, that probably 50% of word-improvs are about singing, inspiration and love) Well, the words section on the cards will serve you as a helper for this!
The words are organized in 3 columns. 1st column adjectives – 2nd nouns – 3rd verbs. The words are pretty random, and your job is to connect the words in any random way you like. By following this method you will get surprising poetic pictures like “Happy strawberries walking on the dirty mountain …”. Let this be your starting point, and expand the story by using your imagination. If you get stuck, you might want to use the card again, but you don’t have to! Rather let your stream of consciousness elaborate on the starting topic.
