A fun, even silly game - in turn, each participant makes a gesture and a sound which the other participants then copy.
To loosen up the group and play a little
1. Players stand in a circle.
2. The first player, randomly assigned makes a gesture (the "fury" part of the game) and a sound (the, um, "sound" part).
3. The gesture should be a whole body kind of gesture. And the sound some accompanying oral reflection of the significance (or lack thereof) of the sound.
4. Everybody, simultaneously, does exactly the same thing.
5. Then the next player goes.
6. Everybody repeats the movement-with-sound.
7. The next player goes.
8. This continues for at least several rounds.
Usual or Expected Outcomes: It's amusing to see your gesture repeated in such grand and unanimous manifestation. Taking a few steps forward makes everybody else take a few steps forward. Turning around, snorting and kicking likewise. It's also amusing to create a gesture and noise that will look silly when everybody else does it.
Somehow in the process a bridge gets built between the proverbial ME and the purported WE - an experience of personal/interpersonal wholeness, an embrace.
It's a kind of release into the other. Expressive. Emotive even. But not to be taken seriously at all.
