1. REALISTIC MACHINES!
2. BUILD FROM SIMPLE IDEAS!
3. PHYSICALLY ATTACH!
A suggestion is needed from the audience of a common item to shop for. You also need an audience volunteer and your host to perform with you.
Both teams start off stage. The host and the audience volunteer start a scene shopping for this item. One performer from one team will enter the scene gradually as a machine version of the product they are shopping for. The host and Audience volunteer (herein AV) will react to the machine in favor of purchasing it, until a performer from the other team enters as a machine version of the product they are shopping for except they will be a rival product! The rival product will now sway the host and AV to purchase them until another performer from the first time enters as a machine attachment to their teams’ machine. This back and forth repeats until all performers are on stage and the host and AV will decide which team’s machine they want to buy.
Kopy's Tips Explained:
- Everyone needs to sell the machine part of this scene. Everyone needs to commit to the idea that they are a robotic version of the product.
- Take your time, no rush to enter scene.
- Physically attach the attachments to the machine (linking arms, hands, shoulders, whatever)
