Who would have thought that participating in group improv could be so enlightening and rewarding? Peter Gwinn and his colleagues at the i.O. Theatre in Chicago developed The Group Mind to create a new awareness in the mind and spirit of any group or team. The Group Mind, the Holy Grail of improvisation, is created by a synergy among improv participants. It's like ESP. It's the feeling of being part of a greater entity, a sense of excitement, belonging, importance that takes teamwork to a new level. Over forty improv games are included for developing group chemistry: creation, bonding, dynamics, energy, focus and more. Techniques are discussed for breaking the ice, agreement, listening and support, teamwork, quick thinking and having fun! Sample chapters: An Introduction to Mind Reading. The Morale Majority. The Games and Their Explanations, Bonding, Focus, Awareness, Creation, Energy, Dynamics, Party Games and more.
