A face beneath, or above!

About Expressions:

We, The Last Word, IMI New Delhi present to you ‘Expressions -A face beneath, or above!’

Expressions is a two-stage impersonation story completion competition, where you put on some masks and wear few others off to suit your words of the story.

It’s where you begin to be beyond the person you are and narrate a story on a given outline. Where you hesitate, you break! And the other person takes over to complete the story.

Your expressions are the tools with which you paint your words! Through ingenious story-lines we would test your personality and the spontaneity and ease with which you can play with words.

At the end of every round, few teams will be eliminated and 4 teams will compete for the position of the ultimate winner of ‘Expressions- A face beneath or above’!
