Pass The Sound series

You may find institutional backstory of Pass the Sound at

The resource that the project provided is a series of videos which present group activities typical for improvisational theatre workshops. The games do not always include agency over the musical content, but if you run a people-centered meetings it is worth adding many of the titles to the repertoire.

Each video not only defines the activity, but shows how facilitators explain it to participants. Some material is in English and sometimes there are subtitles. Production quality is quite high.

Notes on the content

Activities are categorized as Warm-Ups, Skills/Creative Exercises and Workshops. Unfortunately there is some lack of curation for the videos on YouTube, double entries or clearly missing parts from numbered series.
