Barber B presents Each One Teach One
Barber Society live - Barber B & Piranha Barber Academy.
Each One Teach One will be a barbering show case using experienced barbers to exhibit there work in a very unique fun way. To entertain the audience and keep them captivated through out the performance whilst demonstrating the art of barbering.
I plan to use professional dancers as models to help demonstrate the skill required to cut a young child’s hair from the age of 1year up to 2,3,4 that struggle to sit still. The dancers will be preforming street style moves while their hair is being cut by the barbers.
The dancers’ hair will be half prepared before the show and have elements of the finished look completed as part of the watch and learn seminar.
Styling, cutting and finishing of the hair while they will be doing little pop up dance moves to switch barbers to demonstrate team work from the barbers and show case a new Business model that could be utilised in every barber shop to increase revenue and offer a new services new and old clients.
I will through out the show will be inter acting with the audience and will require there participation to keep the show exciting and interesting.
This part of the show will require a roaming microphone that the audience may pass around as they have questions for the team.The models will be encouraged to give some of the audience an opportunity to touch and feel there hair through out the show again creating interaction with the observers.
As part of the show will be using children as models age between 7 and 16 years old, we will have there hair half prepared ready to be cut finished and styled so we can again demonstrate our skills as barbers that are willing to work together as team so collectively we all produce the finished look on all the models as a unit not as an individual barber
The children will also use the medium of dance to show case there hair styles and perform a cat walk show. I will be coming to Amsterdam in the next couple of weeks to meet with the dancers and meet with you and mark to start planning and set up rehearsal dates for me and the team.
