  • Rules for Successful Bodystorming
    • Use your body to ACT OUT your ideas Don’t talk about your ideas, act them out
    • This is poetry slam meets hacking Participation
    • No “Trees”
    • STOP talking - act is out. Don’t explain your idea to me. act it out.
    • Not a prototype, but a sketch. So use call outs/labels/shortcuts
  • Some Suggestions
    • Use large cards that label who the different people are playing
    • Use thought-bubble cards to show what an actor is thinking versus what they are saying. “Good morning to you, How can I help you?” while someone holds a thought-bubble card above their head that shows they are really thinking “A–hole.”
    • The narrator can pretend it is like watching  TV and use a TV controller, to stop action, rewind, or fast forward.
    • Your props can have feelings, thoughts, and they can talk.
    • When your group is working through its presentation, try to approach it with the spirit of improv’s “Yes, and . . . ” rather than “No, but . . . “
  • Our Expectations
