As a performer, I like to constantly study and learn from other areas to have a vast array of tools I can use depending on the project I am pursuing. My degree in Theater Studies was a fantastic first step of a never-ending process in learning about performance and how to improve it. And strangely enough, in my readings on other matters, quite often I find passages about performing arts as examples to illustrate certain ideas. That is examplified in Blink by Malcolm Gladwell and the example of improv he uses to talk about spontaneity. Enjoy!
