LIVE ARTS FOR THE EVERYDAY – APPLICABLE THOUGHT #34 – Warm-up

All performers warm up, I think. It can be a physical warm up to get their body ready for the actions it will perform. It can be a focussing and tuning into what they’re about to do. It can be a small ritual, as un-solemn as having a coffee. Whichever way, the warm up allows a time for everything to arrive and come together: body, mind and emotional/energetic state. Performers need to be present as they work, totally there with what is happening, with their whole self. This fluid state of relaxed attention is useful also for the everyday. Before jumping into the next task that we need to do, we can allow ourselves some time to warm up and make sure that body, mind and energy are all awake and converging on the task.
