Director's Lab

Kirov Drama Theater has opened a director's laboratory. It is directed by the well-known critic Oleg Loevsky. Within the framework of the laboratory, several eminent directors (Egor Chernyshev, Evgeny Lantsov and Oleg Stepanov) staged mini-productions on the theater stage. The work is supervised by the deputy of Oleg Loevsky - Anna Banasyukevich. Directing labs are a fairly common occurrence in the theatrical world. However, this was the first experience for the Kirov drama. The lab is ideal for creative experiments. Directors here get the opportunity to show all theiropportunities and test your strength. Oleg Loevsky in most cases does not allow directors to choose material for productions on their own. But the laboratory in Kirov has become one of the few exceptions to this rule. Here the directors were given the freedom to choose production material. Roles in sketch performances are performed by actors from the Kirov drama. Screenings of these mini productions are free and open to the public.
