Musical Chairs

A variation of the children's game "Musical chairs" or "The Devil's game", but with a twist: When the music stops, the player who doesn't find a chair is not "out", but "in".

The game is played around a grand piano, to improvised music. When a player doesn't find a chair, they receive a card with simple geometric instructions on using their voice, hands, or feet, or parts of the grand piano to join the piano player in the improvisation. A balancing act between moving and listening, and between the competitive outside and the cooperative center of the circle.
