Goal

have people embody items in the scene
practice being specific
understand that it's all about the relationships

Instructions

Director calls out a location (ie. movie theater) and everyone silently assumes a non-human item in the scene (ie. wad of bubble gum on the floor). Then the director asks each person to identify what they are.

Scene ideas
college dorm room at 6AM
kindergarten classroom
a hipsters lunchbox
a box of crayons
a food truck at a festival

Options
This can be the beginning of a group scene. The items begin talking to one another

Could be good warm up to I am a Tree
