Mime games are about developing the skill but they also help establish the techniques of visualisation, third eye and spatial awareness. They can also be used to challenge communication when you ban the use of words.

Name Gesture

Ship Ahoy!

A classic game - useful to develop listening skills and spatial awareness.

Games could be a beginning starter, an introducing step during a workshop or as an end plenary. They are a platform for further development and are never meant to be the whole session on their own.

The nature of drama games is that they are shared, adapted and extended. The original author is not so important as the shared practice. You’ll find games on the site that you’ve seen before, called something different or that you even use in your own teaching toolkit.

We hope that among the known games are ideas of how to refresh old ones as well as new games to use.
