Memory Project

As part of its mission to enable a wider public to appreciate how Directors work in different media, the Foundation is undertaking a long-term, multifaceted Memory Project to record and disseminate examples of the work of influential contemporary Directors.

The Aim is to create a learning resource based around wide-ranging interviews with Directors, focusing on their working methods, as well as landmark productions, approaches to directing and collaborations.

While most interviews are with UK-based Directors, some international Directors with resonant productions in this country are also to be included.

One element of the Project will be to continue the Peter Brook Lectures organised in the past by the Directors Guild Trust and now available through Digital Theatre.


These short trailers were made for the first and second Peter Brook lectures in 2010 and 2011.
