“I wanted research that supports what peak performance is”
Peak Performance is…
A heightened psychological state of living, thinking, and being motivated as the character. It’s a focused, spontaneous, and immersive state that can only be achieved when an actors basic performance needs and psychological beliefs are met. — Kylie Loveday
Humans have needs.
A famous Psychology philosopher called Maslow stated that for humans to reach enlightenment in life, first they needed their basic physical, social, and psychological needs met. Actors are no different.
Actors have needs.
Actors first need to feel 100% prepared and socially supported on set. From this they gain self-efficacy and psychological safety before reaching a free and accepting state. Only then can peak performance be reached. Pressure and motivation can influence peak performance and require management.
How do you reach peak performance?
Satisfy all your needs. This includes the ability to prepare, collaborate, have an optimal mindset, and achieve the peak performance state.

Don’t take our word for it, hear from actors we’ve mentored.
