Commentary on the paper by L.S. Vygotsky "Theatre and Revolution"

Sobkin V.S., Doctor in Psychology, director of the Centre of Sociology of Education, Institute of Education Management of the Russian Academy of Education, Moscow, Russia,
Mazanova V.S., PhD student at the Institute of Sociology of Education RAE, Moscow, Russia
The authors provide comments on the paper by L.S. Vygotsky "Theatre and Revolution" (1919) which ana¬lyzes the reaction of the theatre to the social and political processes that took place in Russia in the course of the revolution. The paper focuses in particular on the following aspects: the historical context; the influence of sociocultural situation on the development of the theatre and its choice of repertoire; the social changes in the¬atre audiences; the emergence of new theatrical forms induced by political changes. The comments to the paper refer to the biographical events as well as to the history of the theatre, culture and psychology. This enables the authors to reconstruct the sociocultural context necessary for understanding not only this very paper by L.S. Vygotsky, but also the process of formation of his views as the founder of cultural-historical psychology.

Keywords: cultural-historical context, tendentious art, slapstick, mystery, theatre of national minorities, actor's feelings, mechanisms of censorship, viewer's reaction

Column: Psychological Practice
