A truly great Ringmaster can make this whole wacky circus group connected. Being a Ringmaster is not about simple transitions between acts. It’s about holding space for each performers and each member of the audience. It about the shared experiences for everyone, creating a mood and a communion with all of the separate pieces. It’s about leading an ephemeral thread that ties together everyone’s journey in the safest way, allowing for more risks to be taken. These risks strengthens’ the bonds between individuals and never leaving anyone behind. It’s about directing them into a better place where they can shine as their best selves and all of their talents are used. It’s giving everyone a role, that uses their strengths, and every individual feels they are doing something meaningful that adds to the elevation of the group and the moment as a whole. Being a truly great ringmaster is to be a leader and mentor.
