Cross Fade

This exercise developed from our attempts to use music, voice, and movement to tell a story. We struggled to make sure we continued the story with the addition of each elements. This approach worked best:

  1. Any person may begin the story the story with any element.
  2. That person continues until the next person takes over the story with another element. Cross-fade.
  3. The next element should extend the story without simply describing what just happened. This goal is best accomplished with the “basic story structure”: set the situation, throw in an obstacle, draw toward a conclusion. (It helps to start with a character’s name and a specific goal.)
