357 Your Performance on Stage – Part 2

Share This Post

Show Summary: 

This week on The Big Talk Podcast, we are getting into part two of my performance-based series covering David Mamet’s book, True and False: Heresy and Common Sense for the Actor. 

I constantly refer to this book both when coaching my speakers and directing my actors. Because the idea of being able to perform from a place of truth and intention — and not being something that you are manufacturing — is how you truly connect with your audience.

If you have a copy of David Mamet’s book, I’d love for you to follow along with me in the passages we cover. However, whether you have this book in hand or not, I promise you’re going to gain so many valuable insights from what we are talking about that they will be impactful as you apply them in your speaking.

In this episode, we’ll explore:

  • The level of control you have over your thoughts and emotions both on stage and off
  • Insights into different methods of acting and performing
  • Why writing a powerful talk and clearly knowing its intention before you take the stage will serve you
  • The importance of being in the moment when you are onstage 
  • The danger in manipulating your audience and their emotions
