Breathe, Talk, Perform: A Take on Psychological well-being of Actors

  • Tue Oct 19, 2021

In collaboration with Medfest Egypt, this panel will discuss performing actors’ mental health, a prevalent issue in the MENA region and internationally. The vulnerability of actors can be attributed to several reasons such as anxiety towards securing roles, failed auditions, negative audience or critics’ response, and the need to be wholly authentic in embodying their roles. This also entails identifying with all sorts of psychological trauma in their roles as well as the characters’ psychological baggage after filming wraps.
