Improvisation (unexpected, sudden).
Have you heard the saying that the best improvisation is premeditated and rehearsed?
Let's think about the many examples of improvisation by musicians. Especially jazz musicians. Imagine if a pianist could not play the piano. First, he would not be a musician, and second, he would not be able to improvise.
First, he needs to become a musician. Then, he needs to learn to play well. Only after that will he be able to improvise.
We use these same rules in any business or practice.
Let's say we have learned our business well. The next step is to learn how to be spontaneous, unexpected, sudden, or, in other words, how to improvise.
Professional comedians and clowns know the secrets of the art of improvisation better than anyone else. Especially street performers.
The street performer must react to whatever happens with pedestrians, cars, animals, or objects like wind-blown packages.
Any performer should be a good improviser. But this is not all.
You, as a performer, should organize the space, so that from a small part of the street or square, from the gray, boring asphalt—a stage appears. Ordinary pedestrians and onlookers will turn into your audience. You will become an artist for them.
The earnings of a street performer depend on this. That is, in other words, the street performer is not only an artist but also the seller of his jokes and ideas. The street performer is not only for the audience who come to see him perform but also for the ordinary passersby.
At every performance, you will come face to face with improvisation.
Your success depends on your ability to improvise.
The real performer is always improvising, no matter what happens.
