Tilla Foljanty, a stage manager in Bonn, Germany, shares her observations about role-switching between leading and following in the context of professional opera productions. She offers keen observations about when and how to embody each role, and shares her love of the following role in particular.
“Be there and be ready to receive whatever information is put in front of you.”
“It’s a safe space the leader creates, which gives me the chance to fill the space and feel comfortable in it and take chances in it.”
“A leader needs a follower and a manager needs an assistant to achieve whatever they want.”
