A-Effect -1




An anti-model with 6 participants was presented. Beforehand, six spect-actors were chosen—each to observe each of the people in the scene. When the scene was over, everyone was replaced by their respective spect-actor and the scene was replayed. But the new players were instructed to play their part with a commentary at the same time: they were to comment on the character they were playing by making explicit (and exaggerating) their feeling or thought about being inside that scene as that character.

[A variation—Recognition: replace the person you were watching and play them as someone they reminded you of]
