In 1922, The Magnanimous Cuckold, directed by Vsevolod Meyerhold with a stage design by Lyubov Popova, was a true manifesto. In Moscow, then the epicentre of the Soviet Revolution, Meyerhold’s production of The Magnanimous Cuckold unveiled a new Constructivist and biomechanical theatre, entirely based on movement and a mastery of the stage space and time.

Written by Béatrice Picon-Vallin, a leading expert on Meyerhold’s theatre, this book features an introduction to The Magnanimous Cuckold, more than 45 pictures from the Bakhrushin Museum (Moscow) and Béatrice Picon-Vallin private collection, writings of Meyerhold about biomechanics (some of them translated for the first time in English) and a bibliography.

Rewind presents a collection of studies on the greatest works and most prominent figures of contemporary theatre. Each book is based on an extensive iconographic research of previously unpublished materials.
