Think of this less as performance and more as sharing of an intimate process.
No artifice. No worry. No trying. Don't need to impress, to be virtuosic. Be authentic. Work from sensation and noticing. When it gets uncomfortable admit that in the movement of that moment. It doesn't have to be serious.
I don't want to play to the crowd, but I probably can't help it. Don't drop it. "Whatever we open we must carry". No matter what.
