Theatre Constructivism

  • Lars Kleberg
Part of the New Directions in Theatre book series (NDT)


On the third anniversary of the Revolution, 7 November 1920, the same day that Yevreinov directed his mass spectacle Storming of the Winter Palace in Petrograd, Meyerhold opened at the RSFSR Theatre No. 1 in Moscow. Together with his assistant Valery Bebutov and a newly organised troupe, he commemorated the holiday with the staging of the Belgian symbolist Verhaeren’s revolutionary drama The Dawn (Les Aubes).1
