A collection of articles depicting the experimental years of the Ukrainian drama theatre. It was opened by one of the most bright Meyerhold’s followers, Boris Glagolin (1879-1948). The theatre was launched with Anatoly Lunacharsky’s Ukrainian play ‘Polum’eri’ [i.e. Arsonists] which Glagolin staged on 7th of November, 1925. During this performance, he attempted to realize the cinematic techniques in the original stage montage. In these years the theater was directed by Vasily Vasilko (1893-1972), who formed with Kurbas and Glagolin the Ukrainian theatre of the 1920s-30s. The edition gathered 15 articles and reflected the generations of actors, directors, composers and artists who changed each other during 10 years at one of the major Ukrainian theatre. The edition presents a chronicle of performances, the main articles and reviews, the large number of photographs including the portraits of theatre personnel, stage performances, recreation rooms as well as set and costume designs and the map of theatre tours.
