The Blind Car*

Participants work in pairs. One person who is the “driver” stands behind another, who is the “car” and has their eyes closed. The driver guides the movements of the car with the following commands: squeezing the right shoulder – turn right; squeezing the left shoulder – turn left; pressing a finger in the middle of the back – go straight; no touching (stop). The trainer gives the signal for the cars to start driving around the room. After some time, the participants exchange roles: the drivers become the cars and the cars become the drivers.
