Composed Documentary w/ Director Q and A
15 September 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm AEST$10 – $14
Join us as Composed, a feature length documentary exploring stage fright, comes to Melbourne on Sept 15th 2017. Director John Beder will be in the audience to introduce the film and take questions once the film finishes.
Through the lens of professional classical musicians, Composed explores the many ways we experience and can address performance anxiety.
Faced with the judgment of peers, audience, conductors, and worst of all themselves, these musicians spend years trying to understand and overcome the physical and mental manifestations of their anxiety. Through their stories, we learn valuable lessons learned over a lifetime of professional performance; and we find that we are not alone in our quest to overcome the fear of failure and embarrassment.
For anyone wanting to feel strength over fear and compassion over judgment, or simply seeking a closer look at anxiety and what makes us tick, Composed opens the door to a world of high stakes, high pressure, and peak performing.
