About the Book

All books in the Routledge Performance Practitioners series are carefully designed to enable the reader to understand the work of a key practitioner. They provide the first step towards critical understanding and a springboard for further study for students on twentieth century, contemporary theatre and theatre history courses. This is the first book to combine

  • a biographical introduction to Meyerhold's life
  • a clear explanation of his theoretical writings
  • an analysis of his masterpiece production 'Revisor, or The Government Inspector'
  • a comprehensive and useable description of the 'biomechanical' exercises he developed for training the actor.


'Pitches skill … is impressive.' - Aleks Sierz, The Times Higher Education Supplement
