Ideas for Use


The cards can be read in order as an instructional choreographic text. They can also be used as inspiration, choosing a card at random for an improvisational score or choreographic framework.  


Pick Three

Turn the deck over and pick 3 cards at random. Use these three cards as a framework to create a performance.  



Instant Improv 

Decide on a given amount of time, 1, 3, 5, or 10 minutes. Select a card at random and use its topic as an idea or score for a solo or group improvisation. 



Terpsichore's Charades

Split into teams and alternate having one person from each group pick a card and use its principle in a solo improvisation. The rest of the person's team members must identify the principle of the card chosen. The team who guesses the most cards correctly wins.
