Re: Playing Solo
Re: Entertaining solo show
It sounds like you have a few tricks up your sleeve already if you
can do the things you mentioned in your message. Sounds to me like
you're feeling the jitters badly. I would bet just DOING the show
will do the most for your confidence about how entertaining you are.
It's only an hour...that's a good time frame for a first jump.
Do the stuff you like the most...don't worry about gymnastics...just
do them with a feeling and ignore the butterflies. See if that
doesn't get a good audience reaction.
I think solo work is the hardest possible performing because you're
so dang naked out there -- everything's (well, almost...) is hanging
out and you're on the line. But an audience will respond to genuine
feeling, I've found. If I make mistakes I roll with it and they seem
to like me the better for it. Doesn't mean I don't still get
nervous, but almost without exception, they seem to respond to me
when I throw my heart into it.
Good luck...I bet it'll be good.
