Performance response paper Performance encounters on 10/13/2014
Juice had an amazing performance, his advocacy speech was wonderful he had a lot of things that worked for him up there on the stage, it was personal and he was letting his audience feel what he was feeling during those hard times, it’s true that almost everything was perfect, but I think that there are some areas that he could have done better.
About his strength, I think what he did was a great job, I don’t think of any other way better to tell his story than the way he did, it was very personal and so touching, I could feel his pain, and his joy at some point, I was just amazed in his story. It takes a lot of courage to share such an important life event with people you just met, whom you do not know exactly what their thoughts or reactions would be toward his advocacy speech.
His story was very well practiced, he was confident telling it, it was neither over practiced nor under practiced, it was on point. He was comfortable telling it and somehow made sure that the audience was on with him. It also was positively charged, one of the reasons why he told us his story was because he wanted it to have a positive impact on us his audience , he informed us that whatever challenges we face in our lives there is always a way out, we just have to stay positive.
