View the process of presenting yourself as theater: (a) teams of actors cooperate on putting together a show on stage; (b) there are three stages: front, back, and outside: on front stage you perform for the audience; on the back stage you rehearse the show; outside you are disengaged from your performance; (c) each team establishes borders for admission to the show with certain rites of passage; (d) each person plays a role (informer, shill, spotter, mediator, non-person, service specialist); (e) backstage you go out of character (refer to those absent derogatorily, discuss technical aspects; argue about team roles; determine actions); (e) teams work to create impressions (maintain loyalty, discipline, exercise circumspection – prepare for problems).
Carefully plan and think through all these aspects of your performance.
