Pushkin House

15th January 2007

Dear All

Received from PUSHKIN HOUSE, 5A BLOOMSBURY SQUARE, LONDON WC1A 2TA

CULTURAL PROGRAMME JANUARY TO APRIL 2007

Pushkin House takes this opportunity to wish you a Happy and Successful
2007. We
enter 2007 with an exciting series of cultural events covering a vast
range of
subjects but with one purpose-to promote Russian culture in the UK and to
foster
cultural relations between Russia and Great Britain. Full details of the
cultural programme can be viewed at our website www.pushkinhouse.org.uk
and you
can always enquire on +44 (0)20 7269 9770.

Highlights of January 2007 include appearances by two giants of Russian
theatre.
Mikhail Kozakov, one of Russia’s greatest theatre and stage actors, will
come to
Pushkin House on Wednesday 17 January and will read from the works of
Pushkin.
On Tuesday 30 January the legendary choreographer Yuri Grigorovich, 80
this
year, will speak about his life and work. You can hear and meet these two
great
personalities at Pushkin House!

Pushkin House, in association with Tsarina Arts, begins its own series of
lectures on Russian art history. On 29 and 30 January distinguished
lecturers
Natalia Rybkina and Angela Tokarzhevskaya from The State Tretyakov Gallery
will
give an overview of Russian art, prior to an extended series later in
2007.

There will be a new exhibition every month. Photographer Simon Roberts
will
display a thought-provoking series of images harvested from Russia’s
outer
reaches. Later in March we join forces with the Red Star Gallery in a
montage of
work from the Soviet period with a special focus on Russia at War. In
April
there will be a unique display of modern iconography by the White Space
Gallery.

The Pushkin Club will continue to hold fortnightly lectures at Pushkin
House
throughout 2007; topics to be covered include ballet, poetry, and an
expose of
Vasily Grossman's war novel Life and Fate by eminent translator Robert
Chandler.
The Great Britain-Russia Society will hold eight meetings covering
current
affairs, history, geography and will close the season with an evening
lecture
entitled The Russian Language in My Life given by HRH Prince Michael of
Kent.

Russian film will be a major attraction at Pushkin House. In February we
will
screen Natalia Bondarchuk’s The Last Duel, fittingly covering the tragic
end of
our patron artist, in March Pavel Lungin’s groundbreaking The Island and
in
April Kirill Serebryannikov's Pretending Sacrifice, which features Lia
Akhedzhakova. This is an excellent opportunity to learn about Russian
cinema;
most films will be subtitled and will be introduced by acknowledged
experts.
Each film will be shown three times in the month.

Tuesday 6 Feb 2007
ANN KODICEK. A talk on 'Diaghilev's designers: the Russian dimension',
regarding
the earlier period of the Ballets Russes and its inspiration in Russian
culture.
Ann Kodicek has talked on this subject at the Courtauld Institute. She is
a
curator and cataloguer – museums and gallery exhibitions, include
"Diaghilev –
Creator of the Ballets Russes" (Barbican Art Gall./Lund Humphries)

Full details of these and many more events, bookings and information can
