20. It opens the eye
Participants: 2 persons.
Respected time: 20 minutes.
Material: Two clothes to close the eyes and two slippers or clubs done with newspapers rolled up in the form of nightstick.
Description: Two volunteers must have the covered faces and must receive a slipper or club. Then they must begin a fight of blind men, to see who puts other right more in the darkness. The remainder of the group hardly assists. So what begins the "fight", the coordinator makes sign for the group not say anything and untie the sale of the eyes of one of the volunteers and it lets the fight continue. After sufficient time so that the results of two situations are observed well, the coordinator withdraws the sale of another volunteer and shuts the experience in.
Conclusion: There opens a discussion on which it was present in the context of the current society. The reaction of the participants can be very varied. Therefore, it is convenient some postures consider like: indifference x indignation; to applaud the aggressor x to be positioned to defend the undefended thing; to wash the hands x to be wrapped and to join forces with the oppressed one, etc. Some questionamentos can help, first ask the volunteers how if they felt and it why. Then too many participants say word to. What it went to posture of the group? For whom did they cheer?
What that has to do with our reality? Which the blindnesses what we face today? What it means to have the blindfolded eyes? Who establishes the rules of the play of the social, political and economical life today? How we can contribute to take away the sales of the eyes of that which they do not see?

It is necessary to be to him attentive to verbal demonstrations of the integrants. After the experience, the integrants are invited doing the same gesture of fondness in the integrant of the right wing. For last, it is necessary to debate on the reactions of the integrants regarding feelings of fondness, fear and inhibition that had.
22. I support
Respected time: 10 minutes.
Description: The coordinator must ask all the participants that if they support in an alone foot, where they should take a leap for front and other did not put another foot in the ground, a jump for the right wing in order that left to give a rodadinha, the lowered one and etc.
Message: We cannot live with our individualism because we can fall and have no strength to stand up. Because we will be alone and do we have a friendly shoulder of our side?
