Episode 78: Back to Life, Back to Reality

The Holidays are over!

Time to take down the decorations, put away the lights, throw out the tree.

You ever wish you could just hold on to Christmas just a little while longer? I think we all do. Performers face the same emotions every time we come off stage. We plan everything down to the last detail, choose the perfect outfit, and rehearse for what feels like forever. On stage, WE KILL IT!! I mean absolutely crush it and blow the audience away. Then, when we wake up the next day, we are back in our reality. We go back to work, back to the same old grind every single day. Over time it makes it harder to give and give on stage, knowing what comes the following day. We have to keep going though, as hard as it may be. Truthfully, that is what makes us stronger, being able to look back to where we came from and know we did it.

Episode 77: A Performer’s Image

Your image is a promise to the audience. Make sure you deliver.

 

Every performer has an image, whether they recognize that or not. The image is the way people perceive you as an artist. A GREAT example would be promotional materials. What you wear and the design you choose for your promos will send a message to the potential audience about what to expect. Every time you are on stage you are feeding into your image.

 

How do you control that?

 

You work at it. You put thought and work into the details. You think about what you are going to wear and what you will say and do on stage. It all starts with knowing who you are and what you want to portray to the audience. Once you are comfortable with that, then you create that experience and stay consistent. Eventually you will build the image you designed.

Episode 76: Go Do It

Life does not stop, we have to make time for our passion.

Sometimes things will happen that keep you from moving forward. Maybe the Holidays are stressful with shopping and family visiting, decorating and making sure to plan for all the traditions.  Perhaps you have a busy time a t work and the time you do get at home is taken up by family and household responsibilities. There is always going to be some big life thing going on that will prevent you from taking action, making rehearsal, posting on social media, or for me...pressing record. While in the moment all of these things are incredibly important, so is your dream. There has to come a time when you tell yourself and maybe even those you love “I HAVE TO DO THIS.” And then go do it.

Episode 75: One Night Only

“Whether Its 300 people, 3000 or 13,000 it has to feel like a celebration and you have to connect….I treat it like whether you are at the back or whether you are at the front, this is a night where something’s going to happen that can only happen there.”

-Hugh Jackman on TODAY, 11/29/2018

Every show is unique. Your audience wants to experience something that is ‘one night only.’ They want to see you perform something special just for them and you can make them feel that. It's all in how well you connect with them. The easiest way to make a connection is to pretend like you are just hanging out with your closest friends, even if it is dozens or hundreds of them. You are there doing your thing with your friends. Thinking that way will keep you relaxed and more importantly, authentic. It is that cool confidence that will draw the audience to you and make the performance feel special. When you do this repeatedly, every single audience will feel like they got a unique show and no one else will see the same one.
