Adelaide Street Theatre Festival
Bringing the world’s best street performers to the Adelaide Fringe Street Theatre Festival during the March long weekend, Louise and her handpicked, world-renowned street artists activated over six public spaces with explosive performance, attracting and captivating the attention of thousands across the city.
In her position at Adelaide Fringe as Director of the Adelaide Street Theatre Festival from 2006 – 2016, Louise contracted and curated over 200 artists, including international and Australian superstars of street theatre. Louise worked closely with a production team, within budget constraints, to produce a festival that reached over 65,000 people over one weekend of the Adelaide Fringe.
I was so impressed with Louise Clarke’s professional demeanor and engaging street performance that when Adelaide City Council awarded the Adelaide Fringe the contract to manage the Adelaide Street Theatre Festival it was under the proviso that Louise Clarke was to direct the event.
