NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS
Number of participants do not matter as long as there are multiples of 3. (Can also be a group of 4)
Props can be used but not necessary.
Groups of 3 are formed, with each group having a person labelled A, a person labelled B and a person labelled C.
OBJECTIVES OF THE ACTIVITY
To create a short play similar in structure to La Ronde and many other well-known plays.
Each group must make three scenes, the first scene involving A and
B, the second scene involving B and C and the third scene involving
C and A. Each scene should last for no more than two minutes.
Only a short reflection is needed for this activity. Questions regarding
how the performers felt about this format of theatre making can be
asked by the facilitator.
