In celebration of the centenary of the Russian Revolution, we are reviving the atmosphere of 1917 Russia, in a new version of Mystery-Bouffe by Vladimir Mayakovsky. This immersive, site-specific production pays homage to the original production, directed by Vsevolod Meyerhold and designed by Kazimir Malevich.
The aesthetics of the production create a journey across the entire 20th century and the crème de la crème of the Russian avant-garde, which has in turn influenced the art world on a global scale.
Exploring Russian supremacism and surrealism, the physical journey of the production will take place across all the floors of the historical building of Waterstones Piccadilly. The audience will be guided through the space by the group of the revolutionary proletarians, who will introduce them to all layers of the story and bring them through to a Promised Land.
Age guidance: 14+
Running time: 60 minutes, no interval
Audience warnings: This is a promenade production, which will require for audiences to stand for the full duration of the production
Special thanks to the students of MA (MfA) Advanced Theatre Practice of the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama for their impact in the creative treatment of the space
