LSFF opens with a world of groundbreaking new cinema...
Until Tuesday 11 July 2017
Welcome to The Dacha, a rural summer idyll with a kitchen stocked full of vodka, hot tea and snacks.
This immersive installation recreates a Russian country house in the Main Space at Rich Mix. Delve into life in the year of 1917 through the eyes of the Popov family dacha in Vyritsa, several hours outside Petrograd. Each weekend through the month will explore a season in the turbulent revolutionary year.
Lose yourself in films, dressing up, board games and cards, live music and impromptu theatre performances where audiences can pick up a script and help us bring to life a classic play from the period.
Sip tea from the Samovar that keeps on giving, partake in fevered political discussion with special guest speakers, and dance to a late night DJ set that draws on a century of Russian music and culture.
All events are free.
