This book offers a rich analysis of collage practices in the theatre of Vsevolod Meyerhold. Focusing on the philosophical and formal tenets of the form, and supporting her analysis with wide-ranging examples from both theatre and fine art, Amy Skinner develops collage as a framework for reading the whole of the theatrical experience, from scenography and mise-en-scène to text and spectatorship. An innovative exploration of the influence of collage on twentieth- and twenty-first-century theatre, Meyerhold and the Cubists will be essential reading for theatre scholars and practitioners alike.
Amy Skinner is a lecturer in drama and theatre practice and director of the MA in drama and theatre practice in the School of Drama, Music and Screen at the University of Hull, UK.
