There’s a game we play at the drama program I run that is extremely popular with the children. It’s called “Wax Museum”, or just “Museum” or sometimes “Statues”. Basically, there is one person who is “it” (or “janitor”) and everyone else is a wax statue holding some kind of interesting pose. The statues can only move if the the janitor isn’t looking at them. If they move and the janitor sees them, they’re out.The goal is to move as much as possible (expressions, poses, location) without being caught. Every single group I’ve ever run this game with has developed a habit of sneaking up behind the janitor and seeing how close they can get without being caught.
I’ve just come to the realization that this game is disturbingly similar to the Weeping Angels.
I have turned the children I work with into Weeping Angels.
