Onstage psychodynamics | lukemitchwest's Blog


Tonight was my first gig of 2013. I'd been on a break. I was going to try some new stuff but I lost faith in the majority of it the night before and decided to stick to the old stuff for the first bit and then move on to the new stuff. It's irrelevent, really. Anyway it went grand! I learned something about myself, which doesn't happen for me often onstage. The new material wasn't really complete so I stuck to the script less. basic psychodynamic principles state that expression through art or journals is a good way to reveal elements of the unconscious. It just comes out. And sans script I noticed something come out.
"Endings!" I said. "I'm talking a lot about endings. I'm bad at endings. Let's pretend that's a cogent theme I chose for tonights set because I'm so SMART" 
I am quite bad at endings! Not just of jokes, either. I don't quite know what to do with this information yet. when I'm less tired I might make an entry that's just a list of endings I handled badly.
