"Tu sais toutes ces choses, dis-tu" : Gordon Craig, Isadora Duncan et l'enseignement de François Delsarte

Abstract : In a recent book, Franco Ruffini assumes that François Delsarte's theories were highly influential on Edward Gordon Craig, who found them in a copy of Genevieve Stebbins's Delsarte System of Expression which he took from Isadora Duncan in 1905 or 1906. This copy is now held in the Edward Gordon Craig Collection at the National Library of France, but Craig read and annotated it in 1911 only - which does not preclude that Isadora Duncan may have introduced Delsartism to Craig as early as 1905. The article focuses on Craig's annotations on Delsarte's and Stebbins's texts, and evokes the friendship between Craig and Percy MacKaye, the son of Steele MacKaye who founded the Delsartist movement in the United States.
