    Got a cool form that you created? Share it here so other teams can try it out! Make sure you list its name, description, and how it works.


    Name: Chaplin
    Cast: 6

    This form really embraces silence, which tests the human condition because we hate silence! It’s also pretty similar to the pyramid form.

    1. Get a suggestion.

    2. The first two improvisers go out and strictly do a scene with object work. NO DIALOGUE. Edit. Second pair repeats with new object work. Edit. Third pair does the same.

    3. Same first pair goes out again and each improviser gets one line of diologue. Same for second and third pairs.

    4. This round each person in a pair gets 2 lines of dialogue.

    5. This round they each get three.

    6. This round they each get 2.

    7. Each get 1.

    8. Final round. Each scene gets a button!


    This form really helps you focus on object work and making sure the dialogue you are saying matters and hits hard. It’s full of emotion and detail.
