BBC Radio 4 - The Film Programme, James Dean remembered; Whales in cinema; Steven Knight on Locke | Managing Performing | Scoop.it
Steven Knight discusses his thriller Locke, set entirely in a car driving down the M6.
Peter Forrest's insight:

I love the quote at around the eight minute: "We all do a masterclass in acting every day when we use our phones". It's more than that, really, because I think we all do multiple masterclasses in acting every day, in our phone calls, in meetings, presentations and so on.

BBC Radio 3 - Music Feature, The Practice of Practising

BBC Radio 3 - Music Feature, The Practice of Practising | Managing Performing | Scoop.it
Celebrated pianist Stephen Hough reflects on a life spent practising.
Peter Forrest's insight:

There are some lessons here for any kind of performance: the risks of being over-prepared (there's no spontaneity or freshness); how mistakes in performance can be liberating (they can free you up so that you stop caring so much about flawlessness: the flawless anything is so anti-human); taking risks when practicing so that you know where the boundaries are.

 

Practicing helps us prepare ourselves so that we can be in peak form but on any given day, we don't know in advance exactly how the performance will go: we only know that through doing it.
