Big Trip

"It is safe to say there is nothing else like this on New York stages right now."

- Elisabeth Vincentelli, The New York Times

Directed by Dmitry Krymov

Big Trip marks the full American debut of Dmitry Krymov’s singular theatrical vision. Hailed by The New York Times as “one of the world’s finest theater-makers,” Krymov has developed a new mode of creation – “Theater of the Artist” – in which design elements take on journeys as complex and vivid as those of the characters. In two interconnected parts, Big Trip explores both American and Russian cultures, past and present, through unique theatrical adaptations of some of their most iconic writers: Hemingway, Pushkin, and O’Neill.

Krymov Lab NYC produces design-forward theatrical presentations; develops new work and methods through rigorous improvisatory experimentation; and trains designers, directors, and actors in devised theater-making. The Lab breaks normative theater power structures, emboldening young and seasoned artists alike to create ambitious objects, characters, and moments. We aim to surprise, examine our lives, and respond to the question, “What kind of art can exist in this time?” 

Krymov Lab NYC's residency at La MaMa has been generously supported by the Trust for Mutual Understanding and the Venturous Theater Fund of the Tides Foundation. Additional production support provided by the Rockefeller Brothers Fund.
