Rule of the Game
* The Emotion Cards which include happy, sad, afraid, and angry were randomly given to 5 players (each responsible for serving as the protagonist for one movement).
* The protagonist: Express the emotion (or sub-emotion) with free improvisation.
* The players: Figure out the protagonist’s emotion and “communicate,” ”ask,” “respond” with the given materials (scores).
