Act Bravely: Practical Strategies to Conquer Stage Fright
Monday October 26th, 2015
Theatre Ontario Boardroom
Suite 350, 401 Richmond Street West
Are stress and anxiety sabotaging your career?
When you’re heading into an audition, rehearsing with new people, stepping onstage to perform, or meeting an agent, director or producer – that’s when you need your brain to work with you, not against you. You can take control of your stage fright with a practical tool that has been embraced by the military, major corporations, schools, health care providers and competitive athletes: mindfulness meditation.
This 3-hour workshop will give you effective tools to manage and overcome your anxiety, and a fuller understanding of how anxiety affects performance. You will leave with a variety of mindfulness tools: quick strategies as well as longer meditations, and practices you can add to your acting warm-up or do separately.
Enhance your performance skills:
• Recover faster from on-stage mistakes
• Overcome distractions
• Build concentration and focus
• Listen more effectively
Increase general wellness:
• Calm your mind
• Manage your anxiety
• Increase your resilience to stress
• Live more in the moment
• Reduce the impact of negative thinking
