Games

The Black-E has been exploring and creating games for over 40 years.  Staff and invited guests play them weekly.   They have been played in art colleges, schools, youth clubs, and art galleries.  They have been played indoors and outdoors.  They run across art forms.  Sometime the playing of the games is an end in itself.  Sometimes the games lead to the creation of visual works, music CDs, videos, poems, stories, and dances.

First Game The first part of the game is played in silence with the players having been asked to think for some moments about the word 'water* - and also to think of one descriptive word which is often associated with water.

It seemed an easy enough game at the beginning.  However, somewhat to the emerging surprise of the players, the game developed over five stages.

The players are invited to move around,  each time they meet another player they create hand-greeting repeating this three times until both partners are happy with the hand-greeting created. Both players must contribute equally to the greeting (that is, the greeting does not reveal one active player and one passive player).

Second Game The first part of the game is played in silence. The players are informed that each of them has been given a card which is allocated somewhere within the area of play (though not deliberately hidden).
