Handpuppets… without puppets

Hans Teeuwen is a Dutch humorist. Although not my kind of humour, this video (in Dutch, sorry) is funny. And there is some cursing in it, so be warned!

In this video you can see how you can play with no (or little) attributes. I did it once (but I didn’t scream and certainly didn’t name world’s oldest profession!) and everything was laughing.

The human voice – Jean Cocteau (Ingrid Bergman)

Ingrid Bergman gives a virtuoso solo performance in this Jean Cocteau one-act called The Human Voice. The plot of this hour-long piece is a simple one: a woman, devastated after her lover leaves her for someone else, speaks to him on the phone one last time. (in the theatre and I suppose also here in this fragment, there’s nobody on the phone of course)

You can talk on an imaginary phone (use your POS card!) with an imaginary person. Also when a kid plays with something (that looks) like a telephone, you can play this improvisation. A month ago, I talked with a Romanian kid. She understood nothing (I talked Italian) and I understood nothing! But we both (and everybody around us) had fun!
