an evening of the book, Mai-Thu Perret / Varvara Stepanova
This is composed from scenes taken from Mai-Thu Perret's 3 film remake of a Soviet play from 1924, An Evening of the Book, presented at Lyon Biennale in 2007. The actors played the part of letters & books. Varvara Stepanova created the costume & stage designs in the original play. Plot spoiler: books from the post-revolutionary period & from the pre-revolutionary period struggle & the post-revolutionary books win, leading to a glorious future of new books & new publishers!
