A new production by Russian director, Dmitry Krymov, debuts on the stage at Yale's School of Drama this week as part of the International Festival of Arts & Ideas. “The Square Root of Three Sisters" is one of the top draws at the festival in New Haven, Connecticut that runs through June 25, reported the daily newspaper Novye Izvestia.
Krymov's road to Yale started in 2006 when Liz Diamond, the head of the Directing Department at Yale's School of Drama, was visiting Russia and saw "Donkey Hot," a performance by the Dmitry Krymov Laboratory. It made a huge impression on her, and she began to tell everyone about Krymov, hoping to introduce him to her students. In 2014, the Directing Department received a grant, and the dream became a reality; Krymov was offered to work at Yale in the format of a studio-laboratory.
