Pictures. People. Time.

I have: a bunch of selections from NYPL's Picture Collection; a group of artist-types who are gung-ho for basically anything; and a maximum of one hour. I'm meant to be leading some sort of physical activity. What now?

This is a group of 6-10 Theater People, although the event is not necessarily focused on theater or acting.
As part of this (recurring) gathering, I volunteered to lead the section generically called "Body-Type Learning", which is a way of saying I should be leading some sort of activity that's physical practice, rather than theory (as opposed to Brain-Type Learning, which is the other major segment). It doesn't need to be a workout, it just needs to not be stationary. Not everyone has to be moving all the time.
Thinking to use them as inspiration for my activity, I gathered a selection of images from the Picture Collection. Some are photographs of one person, some are photographs of pairs, some are paintings of groups, some are abstracts of something-or-other, some are photos of dogs and nebulae (not together).
It turns out that my idea basically fizzled at "Get pictures". I assumed that I would think of something to do with them that would be cool, but I'm at a total loss, and running short of time.
This event begins at 7pm EDT.
Any ideas you have will be greatly appreciated.
