Performer: daily activities

Daily Warm-up Routine

  • Initiate the day with a physical warm-up: A performer starts their day with a full body warm-up to prepare for rehearsals or performances.
  • Undertake vocal warm-ups: Vocal exercises are critical to maintain a healthy voice, enhance vocal range and projection, and prevent strain or injury.

Rehearsal Process

  • Script learning: Each day, performers devote time to learning and understanding the script. This involves memorising lines, interpreting character motivation and context, and doing research.
  • Rehearsals: The bulk of a performer’s day is spent rehearsing scenes. This includes delivering lines, blocking movements, interpreting the script, and developing characters.
  • Review of director’s feedback: Actors review and implement notes and feedback provided by the director to improve performance.

Training and Admin Duties

  • Practical and theoretical training: Performers attend workshops or classes to enhance their acting skills in areas like improvisation, physical theatre, voice training, and method acting.
  • Administrative tasks: This includes responding to emails, setting up auditions, and managing a personal schedule.

Performance and Post Show

  • Performances: On performance days, the evening is spent on stage. This includes a second warm-up, make-up and costume application, and a post-performance debrief.
  • Cool down: It is important to unwind both physically and mentally. This involves stretching, meditation, self-reflexion to analyse the performance, and resting.

Continuous Learning

  • Regular review and reflexion: Performers continuously review and reflect on their own performance, and identify areas for improvement or development.

Remember, performing arts is about more than acting on the stage – it’s about discipline, responsibility, and continuous learning.
