This display reveals twenty years of radical and revolutionary designs for performance against the backdrop of the First World War and the Russian Revolutions.
Around 150 set and costume designs demonstrate the creative, experimental and visionary performance designs of celebrated artists including Kazimir Malevich, Alexander Rodchenko, Vladimir Tatlin, Alexandra Exter, El Lissitsky, Liubov Popova and Varvara Stepanova.
With a large number of works exhibited in the UK for the first time, the display explores the unprecedented boom in Russian theatre culture during the first decades of the 20th century and the development of the avant-garde movement.
Curated in collaboration with the A.A.Bakhrushin State Central Theatre Museum, Moscow and supported by the Russian Ministry of Culture.
