Scratch Sound

Scratch Sound is an interactive performance utilizing custom-made scratch tickets that determine the mood of the improviser. Audience members are given scratch tickets with three circles and 10 possibilities including 8 basic emotions: (acceptance, anger, anticipation, disgust, joy, fear, sadness, surprise).  Not all cards are winners; some scratches will reveal that you must “Try Again.”  If “2X BONUS!” is exposed, the participant scratches another circle and receives double that emotion!
