Imagine you and I starting a scene as two separate characters. After the setting and relationships have been realized you say something peculiar. I tap you on your shoulder and we physically switch places. Now I'm you and you're me; and as you I began to elaborate on that peculiar thing you said. After a few lines you think I've done enough, so you tap me on my shoulder. We switch places again and you take a turn at amping up the peculiarity of that thing.
Round and round we go switching our characters back and forth finding a game of it. This is "Switch" one of my favorite short form improv games. Steve Dukes and Sonya Davis are Swirl the improv game taken too far. Now just imagine us using our powers for good instead of evil. Wouldn't that be something?
