Shame On You

(Jo) From an erect position, the participant slowly bows his/her/their head down in shame. Another participant stands in front gazing with eyes of judgement.

(Ha) From one end of the room to the other and with head remaining in shame, the participant walks forward toward the other end of the space. The accused does not want to go on but must do so. The accuser in front walks backwards while pointing and embodying that of extreme or exaggerated accuser or judge. By the time both the participants reach the end of the room, the accuser leaves the space, but the person in shame freezes in the shame posture for some time.

(Kyu/Kyu to New Jo) At the right time, the one in shame explodes out this shame shell by convulsing, swaying or shaking into a new person that is no longer affected by shame.
