Jane Collins composed and directed the audio script, Craig: In His Own Words for the exhibition Space and light: Edward Gordon Craig.
Edward Gordon Craig was a pioneer of Modern stage craft, whose experimental theatre techniques have shaped live performance today. Space and Light will be an interactive installation that uses sound, light, projection and drama to engage the audience with Edward Gordon Craig, his life, works and visions. The exhibition also features a number of Craig’s beautiful woodcuts and engravings.
The exhibition celebrated the seminal works of radical modernist theatre designer Edward Gordon Craig, with a new interactive table taking centre stage. The installation attempts to immerse visitors in some of Craig’s pioneering ideas relating to space, light and movement by allowing them to manipulate physical stage props to create their own, Craig-inspired, projected scenes. The exhibition runs until March 13th 2011, before embarking on its world wide tour.
This exhibition toured to Gallery Jaroslav Fragner in Prague as part of the Intersection project in cooperation with the Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space (June 2011), with the support of the Culture Programme of the European Union.
