Claire Gordon

Claire is from the UK and has a BA Hons degree in Psychosocial Studies. This coupled with her keen interest in drama and theatre as a mode of social change led her to complete her PGCE in Drama and start a career in education. She has been teaching drama for the past 17 years and has been a Head of Drama, a Head of Faculty for the Performing Arts and examiner for Edexcel GCSE and A Level before arriving here at Prem.

She has been an active member of The Space Theatre in East London as director, performer and committee participant. More recently she has been working with The Gate Theatre here in Chiang Mai, also as a performer and director. Her involvement with outside organisations helps to inspire the classroom teaching and learning experiences that she delivers. For Claire, drama and theatre enable us all to inquire and explore the world in which we live in order to reach a place of knowledge and understanding. Students are able to develop their self confidence and ability to have their voice heard in an environment of creativity, imagination and where it is safe to take a risk.

“Theatre is a form of knowledge, it should and can also be a means of transforming society. Theatre can help us build our future, rather than just waiting for it”. Augusto Boal.
