More Info


Timofey Kulyabin is one of the most prominent directors on the Russian theater scene today. His operas and plays have been performed on the stages of the Bolshoi Theatre, Moscow's venerable Theatre of Nations and, overseas in Vienna and Paris. In THE THREE SISTERS Kulyabin has taken this classic drama and reinvented it as an epic parable about finding harmony through suffering. The entire cast, save for one, communicate throughout the performance solely in sign language. By doing so, the selfishness, isolation and lack of mutual understanding are dangerous and laden with disaster, the characters defenseless against a huge "sounding" world. A revelation of experimental theater that miraculously remains entirely Chekhovian.
