Tips for the Devising Director

Leave a comment

Tips for the Devising Director, from Emily Harvey (director of NDGM, Barn Show and 30 Hours):

Good ideas are inherently stronger than bad ideas.

A question from an observer is the greatest gift you can receive.

Kill your idols and your babies.

Time is your friend.

Try it, don’t talk about it.

Do something physical at the beginning of rehearsal to shake off your day.

The more scared you are of doing something, the more rewarding the pay off will be.

Fix a problem every day.

Surround yourself with people who will debate with you.

Remember what the audience doesn’t know.

Theatre is always made better by collaboration.

You will learn something new everyday, so never think you have it figured out.
