Overdrawing from your body bank

Daniel Crisp

I’ve never really been into the whole mind, body and spirit thing. But the last couple of years, particularly now, whilst living in Germany, life has taught me that survival of the fittest is all about finding your balance.

This month we switched to winter hours for our show “Wunderkammer”, which means we now perform 7 x 2 hour shows, 6 days a week. That’s 1 extra show on Sunday. It may not seem like too much of an additional workload, but it totally empties the energy supplies.

I think it is fair to say that we, as the ensemble were quite nervous about the energy reserves coming into the first week of winter hours. Everyone was worried they would be too exhausted to do the extra show or they were going to burn out.
