Considered one of Russia’s most influential directorial voices, Dmitry Krymov and his collaborators devise deeply moving, visually majestic theatrical experiences. Rarely seen in the UK, his work conjures beguiling images of epic proportion from simple materials.
Seated up close and personal on the stage, audiences enter a world of transformation where objects, sounds and people can change in the blink of an eye. Depicting the oppression of Soviet Jews followed by the censorship of Shostakovich under Stalin, Opus No 7 sees larger-than-life puppets, duelling pianos, living walls and blizzards of newsprint form part of a genre-defying double bill.
