Several actors depict a scene in mime. A presenter then spontaneously describes what can be seen in that picture On a given command the players change posture and position. A new image is created. The task of the presenter is firstly to explain what can be seen on the individual pictures, secondly to develop a story that links the different pictures together. The goal of the game is to put the speakers in as much trouble as possible by representing something absurd, or something that apparently has nothing to do with the previous "slide". The speaker must somehow link both slides together and give a lecture as consistent as possible.

Variant: The quizmaster asks for a theme (where to go on holiday, scientific topic). Now the speaker starts with a couple of opening words as usual for a slide show. At last he says: "And here we see how.." and the presenter builds the appropriate "sculpture". On a signal from the presenter (operating the remote control) the picture disappears, that means that the sculpture disappears. Again the speaker says a couple of uniting words to announce the next slide (sculpture). etc. The sculpture possibly includes surprising components for the speaker which he has to incorporate in a natural manner in his lecture.
