The questions asked during the movie: * How often do you google yourself? * Imagine that you are invisible on a street with a candle in your hand. * Do you believe in miracles? If you do, prove it. If you don't, let it happen. * How long can you improvise about time travel? * Consider the statement - we are made up of both soul & body. Can you represent this through movement? * What's the most recent book you've read? Can you share an excerpt from the book giving the author's name at the end? * Pretend that you are trying to demolish an imaginary wall. * Can you act out the experience of being in a falling plane? * Pretend you are in an experiment where monkeys are ruling the universe. * Can you describe your ego, super ego and alter ego just using one sound for each? * Assume that the war movie industry is confidentially supported by gun manufacturers. Using this information can you act for us, the best dying scene from your best war movie. *Pretend that you are threatening someone ... Written by Onur Yayla
