Perpetual Machine is an Acting Improv game.


  • Everyone.

How does it work?

Perpetual Machine begins with one person going to the center of the circle and performing a repetitive, meaningless, and funny action. Then, people from the circle join in with other somewhat synchronized movements. Props, sound effects, and any other additions are fine. This game usually gets boring after a minute or two, and the machine is rarely ever seen to serve a purpose.
