fac research pentru un articol si am ajuns la aceste lucruri, care-s utile de stiut nu doar pentru artisti timizi (n-am vazut artist mare care sa nu aiba emotii chiar si dupa ani buni de meserie), ci si pentru noi, muritorii de rind, care intram in panica din prea mult ego/ mindrie 🙂
adrenalina, anxietate si performance-ul live
Unfortunately human pride can be so strong that fear of public humiliation or disgrace often produces the same degree of emotional panic as meeting a tiger. The general name given for this kind of physical state is arousal. Long-term arousal can affect our physical health. It is called stress and is one of the most studied areas of psychology because it affects so many different people in so very different ways. Long-term stress suppresses the body’s immune system, makes us very jumpy and alert to potential threats. It also interferes with judgement so that we are less likely to make sensible, rational decisions or to appraise what is going on realistically. So what is anxiety or performance anxiety? How do we cope with it as performers and how can we help avoid anxiety? These are questions I will endeavour to answer in the course of this essay.
what is performance Anxiety? There are three qualities that a successful performer must have: a) a technical control of their instrument, b) good taste in using this technique musically and artistically and c) the courage to do this in front of an audience. There are few activities that can produce tension and anxiety as quickly and as thoroughly as performing in public.
Most performers have experienced performance anxiety in some form and to various degrees. This fear may be experienced while preparing for a performance, for days or even weeks before hand, and not just while performing. It can be experienced in the present (stage fright) as apprehension (fear of what could happen) and arousal (anticipation). Performance anxiety is no different from general anxiety. Feelings of fear and apprehension are accompanied by increased and prolonged physiological arousal. Severe anxiety is where the arousal is too high for optimal performance. This arousal may be normal and temporary, or abnormal and long lasting and symptoms can be cognitive, behavioural and physiological.
Cognitive symptoms of anxiety include fear of making mistakes and feelings of inadequacy and worrying about things happening. Behavioural symptoms are not being able to do things, which normally happen naturally.
