Russian director Dmitry Krymov creates moving, visual theatre in Opus No.7.
Krymov has had a long, acclaimed career as a designer in Russia, designing more than 90 shows.
He started directing with his Dmitry Krymov Laboratory in 2004, creating visually arresting shows packed with symbolism and emotion.
In Opus No.7, Krymov uses giant puppets, duelling pianos, living walls and a newspaper blizzard to tell the stories of Jewish oppression during the Holocaust, and the censorship of Shostakovich under Stalin.
