The New Factory of the Eccentric Actor presents Blue Blouse
Inspired by the Blue Blouse theatre movement in the Soviet Union in the 1920s this work
seeks to re-createthe energy and the vibrant atmosphere of the Blue Blouse’s own performances.
Lasting just short of an hour the work features twenty-three performers, and includes live music and dance.
The Blue Blouse (Синяя блуза) theatre troupe were an influential agitprop theatre collective, created by Boris Yuzhanin under
the auspices of the Moscow Institute of Journalism. They were a very important theatre movement, now long forgotten.
They thrived between 1923 and 1927, when they merged with the Workers Youth Theatre.
