In 2008 in Krasnoyarsk with the support of the Mikhail Prokhorov Foundadtion a new project was started – the festival: Drama. A New Code (DNK). Relying on the experience of the festivals Lyubimovka, New Drama and Real Theatre, the organisers of DNK for the first time in Krasnoyarsk District and beyond the Urals in general presented audiences of this region with the possibility of acquainting themselves with modern dramaturgy in the unusual form of theatricalised readings of plays by modern Russian dramatists. Plays by young directors were performed by actors from the Krasnoyarsk Pushkin Drama Theatre. Each production ended with a discussion with the audience.
