N Word Sentences
Ask for a pair of volunteers, and a number between 2 and 5 from the
audience. The volunteers will then perform a scene, alternating dialogue,
with sentences containing only the number of words received from the
audience. If they use to many or too few, they are eliminated and a new
volunteer may take their place.
APPLICATION: This exercise forces the volunteers to be succinct in their
dialogue. Nonverbal communication is also important here as it will take
the place of any extraneous verbiage.
