message passed without checking to next person
In pairs, create 30 second scenes with only these 4 words.
In a circle Person 1 mimes an activity. The next person asks them 'what are you doing" and they respond with something different. Then person 2 begins doing that activity.
In groups, each player takes a turn talking for 90 seconds while expressing one thought at a time to one person.
As people are picked up by the driver their emotional state 'infects' the rest of the group.
