The day-to-day life of the actor can involve coping with slings and arrows from all directions. Being able to manage the stresses and mental roller coasters of our industry in helpful ways can be one step towards cultivating a sustainable and fulfilling career.
This workshop will explore stress in the life of the actor and aim to better understand how individual patterns might influence us for better or for worse. We will look at evidence-based and practical strategies for responding to stress in helpful and sustainable ways, and engage in mindfulness activities that are tailored for performers. We’ll also consider how to apply this work to creative processes, including character development and plot analysis work.
A joint initiative of the Equity Foundation and the newly founded Equity Wellness Committee (EWC), this workshop will be an opportunity to discuss the concepts of mental health and wellbeing in the life of the professional performer, and hear more about initiatives of the EWC. This event is free of charge for WA Equity members. Please ensure you register to attend if you intend to take part.
