Dr. Claire Warden is an academic, writer, and researcher at De Montfort University, Leicester, UK. She is particularly interested in modernism, theatre history and performance studies. She is the author of British Avant-Garde Theatre (2012), Modernist and Avant-Garde Theatre: an Introduction (2015), and the forthcoming Migrating Modernist Performance: British Theatrical Travels through Russia which has been funded by the British Academy.
The lecture will introduce some of the figures and ideas central to her current project: investigating British interest in Russian theatre during the early to mid-twentieth-century. Dr. Warden will discuss three key travellers; Edith Evans, Joseph Macleod, and Basil Dean, who were all inspired in different ways by their trips to Russia. Dr. Warden hopes to present some brand new archival work at this event and to explore a range of exciting, under-researched modernist theatre productions.
