One of the most studied aspects of performance, is performance anxiety.
Performance anxiety can significantly impact the quality of performance but specialized authors suggest that performers should learn to embrace this anxiety. It's healthy way to stimulate an eletrifying performance with genuine feeling. Nevertheless, anxiety can reach levels that impact negatively the quality of the performance, or even prevent it from happening. All specialists agree, a healthy and constructive environment is key towards managing anxiety.
The main identified sources of anxiety are criticism and the performer’s own doubts on his or her ability to deliver a quality presentation. There are a variety of techniques that can be used to manage anxiety: breathing, relaxation, positive thinking, affirmations, humor, good luck charms, etc.
These techniques can help all artists achieve the ultimate goal: an inner-peace sensation of delivering to the best of your ability.
A performer’s relationship with criticism must be based on managing fear or worries and not criticism itself. The means of embracing criticism and learning to differentiate between fair/constructive and than which is not; is called the ¨Separation¨ technique.
Separation refers to the performer understanding that self and performance are separate entities and everyone runs the risk of failing. Purpose and goals should be made aware in performing; thinking positively and separating any fears or worries. An artist learns and makes progress by trial and error.
Attempting to be perfect in performing, or the anxiety brought by the attempt to control absolutely everything, are symptoms of this situation. The best way to address it is by following a process based on rationally defined goals. Set goals that are challenging but achievable. Be realistic about expectations on delivery and use the audience’s reaction and feedback to measure success on such goals.
The best performances are achieved when there is a balance between discipline in practice and the performer’s self liberation in the act. A certain level of tension brings electricity to performances.
When the audience’s feedback is not only taste-based criticism, but also includes suggestive and constructive concepts, that is when a performer can really understand how to further develop and improve their art.
The performer/audience relationship becomes critical.
