Task-based Games: Take Flight

Description

Hel­lo!  My  name is Ger­maine.  I have pre­pared for you some task-based games you can share and play with your friends.  I love task-based games because I feel like I am liv­ing the expe­ri­ence in a way.  When every­one involved is open and will­ing to par­tic­i­pate, then it feels like we are all in this togeth­er.  We receive and give in this very direct and delib­er­ate way that I think is an hon­est exchange for all of us.  Have fun, enjoy!

Take Flight

Prepa­ra­tion:

Find a piece of tis­sue paper that is just for you!


Let’s play!

1. Cre­ate wind with your body to lift the tis­sue paper off the ground

2. Play with the paper freely

3. Come to stand­ing and toss the tis­sue paper, observe the paper sculp­tures in the air.

4. Get into a nat­ur­al toss­ing pulse, let’s call it heartbeat

5. Sub­di­vide this heart­beat (For exam­ple: 123, 123, etc.).  If you are play­ing with a friend or in a group, try toss­ing the paper to each oth­er.  Remem­ber, try to keep the tis­sue paper in the air.

6. Even­tu­al­ly, allow the paper to come into con­tact with dif­fer­ent parts of the body.

7. Allow the game to come to a nat­ur­al end.

Feel free to do a part­ner ver­sion while sitting!
