This Autumn, we embark on a major new season of theatre, visual art and film, inspired by the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution.
From a short-lived surge of post-revolutionary optimism came tremendous intentions to change the world, an explosion of new aesthetics and a passion for artistic experimentation. This season delves into the history, memory and powerful legacy of Revolution, from bright new artistic futures, to disillusionment and political disturbance, to the thriving contemporary cultural scene that exists in the country today.
