Synopses & Reviews
This book offers a rich analysis of collage practices in the theater of Vsevolod Meyerhold. Focusing on the philosophical and formal tenets of the form, and supporting her analysis with wide-ranging examples from both theater and fine art, Amy Skinner develops collage as a framework for reading the whole of the theatrical experience, from scenography and mise-en-scandegrave;ne to text and spectatorship. An innovative exploration of the influence of collage on twentieth- and twenty-first-century theater, Meyerhold and the Cubists will be essential for theater scholars and practitioners alike.
