Live Performance or Rehearsed Performance?
A live act is conscious, feeling the situation: there is a knowingness beyond knowing what might happen, having the courage to listen to a situation that is telling us something new. That is the scary art of living in the now, without clinging to preconceived ideas. That is the origin of creativity. A live performance is always a fresh performance – and it’s enlightening.
A rehearsed act is the mechanical dogma of acquired programming: it is not alive but rather, safe, cosy, repetitive and isolating – and lacks the ability to communicate.
We always have a choice.
