Teaching Resources

We’ve created a free educational resource pack on Edward Gordon Craig for teachers of Key Stage 5 (16-18 years) drama and theatre studies courses.

The downloadable resources provide an introduction to the multi-faceted nature of Edward Gordon Craig’s work and offer practical, interactive and physical explorations of the theories and practices of this legendary theatre practitioner. Accompanying the pack are downloadable timelines, a mind map poster alongside newly digitised Craig designs and artwork.

The pack has been made with funding from The Heritage Lottery Fund and in association with The Edward Gordon Craig Estate.

The Who is Gordon Craig? project seeks to ensure that Key Stage 5 drama and theatre studies students are introduced to Edward Gordon Craig’s contribution to our theatrical culture and heritage. 

Based on a study of KS5 drama and theatre studies teachers in 2015, there was unanimous confirmation that teaching resources on Edward Gordon Craig were limited when compared with those available for other practitioners. This study also revealed that this lack of a consolidated, comprehensive resource for teaching Craig’s work was a deterrent that prevented teachers from actively teaching and exploring Craig in their classrooms in substantive ways. 

This educational resource package, along with the website and online material at www.edwardgordoncraig.co.uk, aims to fill the void in the available resources to teachers at this level. It provides a practical, interactive and physical exploration of the theories and practices of this legendary theatre practitioner.
