LIVE ARTS FOR THE EVERYDAY – APPLICABLE THOUGHT #68 – Overacting

Overacting is carrying out an action with more energy than necessary. Leaving aside the possibility of parody, why would a performer do this? It would seem to be an attempt at highlighting what we are doing, as if we thought that the audience might not realize the importance of what we’re doing, so we make an effort to get the focus. We may succeed in obtaining the other’s attention… while losing their resonance, empathy and connection.

LIVE ARTS FOR THE EVERYDAY – APPLICABLE THOUGHT #15 – Resonance

Accoustic resonance is the phenomenon by which a sound wave is amplified by objects whose natural vibration frequency matches that of the wave. Resonance helps the sound carry. Likewise, when something moves us, people who resonate with us receive this and relay it back or further. The lack of such resonance makes the expressing and manifesting of what is vibrating inside us much more challenging.
