Off-Season Duties For The Expat Thespian

The Winter season is just around the corner and we all know what that means.  If we haven't secured a role in a film, television or stage production by the end of Fall chances are we won't be working through Winter. Today's post?

Off-Season Duties For The Expat Thespian

Hone Your Instrument - As actor's our instrument is our body.  From head to toe. There are aspects to our instrument that are stronger than others.  Take the time to find those weak points and exercise them. Are you a cardio person and not good with strength training or vice versa? Have you been neglecting that voice class you've always wanted to take?  I've found that it's usually something you hate to do that's often the area of opportunity. For me it's yoga, I can't stand yoga, but I use aspects of the exercise in my morning workout for 10 minutes.  It's excruciating but it wouldn't be worth it if it were easy. 

Workshop Your Host Language - I can't speak for your host country but here in Korea there are always universities and private academies doing short intensive workshops to learn Korean.  Check out the enrollment procedures and see if you have the necessary funds to invest in your language.  Last week I posted about using Memrise but intensives go way pass just using an app on your electronic device. They dig deep into the core of the language. However, if workshops aren't an option find a free class and dedicate time each day to your studies.   

Have Some Fun - For all that is good and true!  Please, please, please, have some fun!  Go on a trip with a group of friends or by yourself, try a cruise for the first time, explore your host country, or just sit at home and watch 6 seasons of Big Bang Theory while eating a large pepperoni pizza! (Ok, that last one is all me!) Nonetheless, do something you enjoy that DOESN'T involve acting.  Your sanity will thank you. 

The off-season doesn't have to be time of regret or despair.  Take it as a moment to recharge, rethink, and "re-strategize" your life...Expat Thespian!
