tap in & tap out

As you or your actors become more experienced and familiar with one another and the work (and/or if the work is less demanding), boundary practice and closure can be shortened to a simple "tap in" and "tap out" exercise

tap in

Used at the beginning of rehearsal or intimate scene

After actors have shared their boundaries with one another, actors stand across from one another and make eye contact. After a moment, actors take a full breath in and out in sync together, maintaining eye contact. Then actors tap their hands together (as if doing a double high five). 

Modification: Actors clap their own hands together instead of the "double high five."

tap out

Used at the end of rehearsal or intimate scene

It's the exact same thing as tapping in! Actors stand across from one another and make eye contact. After a moment, actors take a full breath in and out in sync together, maintaining eye contact. Then actors tap their hands together (as if doing a double high five). This can also include a "thank you." 

Modification: Actors clap their own hands together instead of the "double high five."
