Friday Tip

Dear Constant Reader,

Happy Friday! Here’s your tip!

When your back is to the audience, you must continue to engage with them.

Turning your back on the audience can be a powerful tease and build some tension, but only when you stay focused and give the audience the same energy you would if you were facing them. Even though you can’t see them, they see you. An effective performer remains aware of the audience and gives them attention, even without eye contact.

You may be taking care of a tricky remove out of sight of the audience, but dropping your head and your character to do so can make them lose interest in you. Project your character in every aspect of your physicality and you’ll remain intriguing.
