Mystery-Bouffe

In collaboration with 274 Theatre

28th & 29th October

Waterstones Piccadilly

To celebrate the centenary of the Russian Revolution, we revived 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 took place across all the floors of the historical building of Waterstones Piccadilly. The audience was guided through the space by the group of the revolutionary proletarians, who introduced them to all layers of the story and bring them through to a Promised Land.
