An evening of conversation celebrating the life, work and exceptional influence of Russian theatre director, actor and producer Vsevolod Meyerhold.

When the Bolsheviks took power in Russia in October 1917 the young theatre director was the radical, star pupil of the great Stanislavski. Meyerhold’s productions were shaking up classical theatres and his plans for actor training were a century ahead of their time. Like many artists he supported the revolution and put his full creative weight behind some of the most exciting propaganda the world has ever seen. The shocking narrative of his tragic demise makes for an archetypal parable of the artist and the state. Join us for another unforgettable evening of artistic revelation with academics, film, performers and Meyerhold experts including Dr Amy Skinner from the University of Hull, Director and Acting Coach Oleg Mirochnikov, and Dr Beatriz Calvo-Merino at City University.
