Ecouter (Spring 2013)

One thing you always do before a performance:

I always take a shower right before call time before performances. Even if I’m pretty    clean or have just showered recently – it makes me feel refreshed and gives me a sense of  clarity.

What do you do after a performance? How do you unwind? 

Most of the time I like “alone time” after a performance. I need a little time to myself to process everything, sometimes I feel overwhelmed if I’m immediately engaged in conversation. I like to have a glass of wine when I get home and usually another shower.

Describe your favorite moment in a performance:_DSC0647

I have two favorite moments! One is the moment in a performance when I feel focused but am able to give up a lot of my thoughts, get out of my head and just perform “in the moment.”  I always compare it to how it might feel to have an out of body experience. It’s a really beautiful place to be. My other favorite is when I feel a genuine connection with the audience, even if it’s just one person.
