Hear a lecture on experiments in early Soviet and American theater.

This lecture will focus on early Soviet theater, and in particular on the experiments of Vsevolod Meyerhold, Nikolai Evreinov, Adrian Piotrovsky, and their peers, who developed a new form of theater: rally shows. Their works will be discussed in conjunction with American theater of the 1960s and the question of relations between theater and performance.
