Better Bodystorming Quick Tip: Using Actor Labels

A good way to make bodystorming easier both for the participants and the viewers is to use Actor Labels.Actor Labels are BIG labels that you hang around people's necks to make it easy for others to know what actor they are playing. That way you don't have to spend as much time trying to figure out how to portray a young child if you don't look like on

In the October 16th afternoon bodystorm we made Actor Labels mandatory and we had some good examples that you can see in the photos below.  We wrote the actor's goal and feelings on the front of the card in addition to the role. The best materials seemed to be thick paper or construction paper and pipe cleaners. These are three good examples of actor labels that we used in the bodystorming.
