Vsevolod Meyerhold

Vsevolod Emilyevich Meyerhold (1874-1940) was a pioneering Russian avant-garde theatre director. He opposed the realism of Konstantin Stanislavsky’s theatre, asserting a theatre that celebrated its own theatricalism. His work inspired many artists of his modernist era and since then, including theatre practitioners such as Bertolt Brecht, Jerzy Grotowski and Augusto Boal, though his work has still not had the widespread recognition it deserves.
