Дендизм русской деревни: из истории традиционного мужского костюма. Вечер с Андреем Боровским

Картуз с цветком и красная косоворотка - насколько это привычный образ мужского русского костюма соответствует истине? Какие фасоны русские женщины позаимствовали у мужчин, а дворяне — у крестьян? Носили ли крестьяне галстуки? В какой момент в российской культуре народный костюм начал жить отдельно от народа? И почему именно мужчины на протяжении столетий были проводниками моды в русской деревне?

ESPIONAGE AND THE TELEGRAPH: AN ILLUSTRATED LECTURE with BARBARA EMERSON

There was mounting evidence that Russia, using the latest technology, the telegraph, was successfully deciphering the British government’s enciphered communications throughout the second half of the 19th century. But it was only with the opening of the Russian archives that the full extent of Russian cipher breaking became clear. By reading the dispatches of British diplomats, Russia secured an invaluable tool in pursuing its ambitions in Europe and Central Asia. This event is organised by the GB-Russia Society and tickets are only available from the GB-Russia Society website: www.gbrussia.org

Premiere Screening: Onegin (The Red Torch Theatre)

Timofey Kulyabin's Golden Mask Award winning Onegin removes all expectations of Pushkin's novel in verse and places you not in some historical epoch, but in today's world, immersed in the inner thoughts, hopes, despairs, passions and disappointments that drift in, through and around the 4 central figures, Onegin, Tatiana, Olga and Lensky. There are no grand balls, no fans, no lorgnettes, no "Encyclopedia of Russian life". Just a quiet love story that perfectly conveys the attitude of the great poet and how very much his masterwork still resonates with our 21st century reality.

Feeling Space, Making Space: Mikhail Chekhov and Theatre Design. A talk by Sinéad Rushe

Mikhail Chekhov (1891-1955) was one of the most renowned Russian actors and pioneering acting teachers of the twentieth century. The emphasis in his teaching was on the imagination and psychophysical acting. However, what is less known, is that he also elaborated a rich set of ideas about scenography and theatre design. In this talk, award-winning theatre director Sinéad Rushe provides a fresh look at this relatively under-appreciated side of Chekhov’s work.
