Directing and Coaching

In the performing arts it’s common if not essential to have a director. The days of trial and error are over and we believe it’s time for street performers to take full advantage of an outside eye during the creation process.

Director can speed up the creation process and condense years of trial and error into a week or two of focused work. A director takes your ideas and help you craft them into a polished show.

A Coach can help get you organised, give you realistic feedback and accompany you through the steps of establishing yourself in the industry. From show-creation to show-marketing and everything in between, they can help you make a “plan of attack” and support you when you struggle.

Becoming a great Street Performer is not easy but you don’t have to do it alone.

FAQs

  1. Choose the coach who is right for you.
  2. Send them a message and tell them a little about yourself. Where you are based, your background etc. Let them know about your show, your ideas and what you hope to achieve.
  3. Your coach will get in touch ASAP and together you can come up with a plan that best suits you

There are many places to meet:

  • We can come to you – This is the easiest for you but can be a bit more expensive as you need to pay travel and accommodation for your director. 
  • You come to us – This is bit cheaper. We are based in Freiburg (Germany), Salzburg and in Vienna.
  • While on tour – All our coaches tour Europe a lot during Summer. A great option is to book directing on the Monday-Friday between festivals. This can be the most affordable way to organise a director.

The cost of a director is variable and something you need to negotiate.  However a rough guide to the cost is approx. 200 – 300 Euros per day. This price may be reduced if you book many days in a row.

If at all possible it helps to rent a small hall, or rehearsal space so you can work without distractions. This should be discussed with your director.
