LIVE ARTS FOR THE EVERYDAY – APPLICABLE THOUGHT #11 Projection

Projection is what makes one’s voice heard clearly and without strain from a distance. However, the same notion can refer to the body when what it does is clearly readable, for example in clowning or mask work. Projecting means making what you’re doing travel out into the space to reach the audience. Too much projection might come across as even aggressive for the audience and be counterproductive. If in our life we are trying to communicate something but are not succeeding, it might be interesting to ask ourselves if we are using the appropriate amount of projection.
