Relationship development

29 Jun

common understanding of relationships and their development

Ask the players to divide into pairs with someone they are going to (or allready are) playing closely together with. Tell them to make an image of their current relationship, for example portraying love, anger, fear, conflict or whatever. Then ask them to portray their future relationship in the same way, for example moving into sorrow, friendship or whatever.

The exercise makes it very visible for both players how their relationship is going to develop during the larp and makes it easier for them to play in the same direction. The physical character of the exercise also creates another kind of understanding than what would occur if the relationship development were to be discussed – and its faster.

The exercise can be repeated with different players as many times as you deem it necessary.
