This is a simple drama game in which participants take turns asking each other “What are you doing?” and acting out the various responses. Though simple, it engages the imagination and gently challenges participants out of their comfort zone by having them mime a range of different actions.

Materials

    Instructions

    Step 1:

    The group stands in a circle.


    Step 2:

    One person enters the circle and begins miming an action (e.g. brushing hair or frying an egg). They continue until another member of the group enters the circle and asks: “What are you doing?” The first person responds by describing any action other than the one she is doing. For example, if she is pretending to brush hair, she might say something like “I’m playing hockey.” The second person must then begin to mime playing hockey.

    Continue until most or all members have had a chance in the middle. Encourage participants to be creative with the actions.
