This was the keyword speech at the event, 'Edward Gordon Craig: His Legacy'
A biographical and historical perspective, this talk suggests some early influences on Craig’s visionary ideas from his extraordinary theatrical pedigree. Sir Michael will also chart Craig’s development as a European Modernist during a long, wayward life in exile that led to his achievements being largely forgotten by the end of his career.
