Lonely shapes

Each student thinks about a lonely moment in their lives and creates a shape that it might represent.
Ask the group to walk around the room and on a clap everyone holds their pose.
One half of the group can stay frozen while the others move around the room and have a look at the shapes.
Try to work out what their shape represents.
Then get the other half of the group to view the rest.
Put the participants into groups of 3 or 4 and using their shapes they are to devise a performance, which shows inclusion/togetherness.
They must use their shapes as a starting point. But have a finishing shape where they are united.
Show the different sketches and discus them with the group.
How did it feel moving from isolation to inclusion?
