Outside In

Outside in is a term I learned about as a theatre student. It means allowing the outside world (for example, the costume) affect the way you (your character) behaves. The opposite is the term ‘inside out’ meaning letting how you (the character) feels affect his/her behavior. In life, I used to think outside in meant allowing what’s on the outside impose a meaning, a role, a label onto you (the person) causing your behavior. I would like to think of it, though, as inviting the outside world in and then allowing what’s there to affect and inspire the outside world. Perhaps, even effect some change. Just a thought. Not sure if it’ll mean anything to anyone else other than me. I am looking forward to meeting the nicest people at the MoMondays event on August 31st.
