029 – Fortunately, Unfortunately (yes, but)

  1. Stand in a circle. Create a story as a group by going around the circle and adding a sentence each. 
  2. The only rule is that the lines must alternate between: “Unfortunately….” and “Fortunately….”. 


Example: “Unfortunately my flight hit some turbulence.” “Fortunately it didn’t last too long.” “Unfortunately the turbulence caused an engine to fail.” “Fortunately there were parachutes on board.” “Unfortunately there weren’t enough to go round.” …etc.

Notes: The group can develop this exercise and create a short improvised scene – ask participants to act it out –  present the story physically in the space as opposed to telling it only with words.
