GeoProMining supports staging of play by Russian writer Sergei Dovlatov

15 December 2011, Yerevan

GeoProMining, a diversified international mining group, has supported a production of Abanamat by Russian writer Sergei Dovlatov at the Stanislavsky Russian Drama Theatre in Yerevan. The production is part of a project to boost knowledge of the Russian language in Armenia that GPM supports through its corporate social responsibility programme Resources For Good.

Abanamat is based on several of Dovlatov’s short stories (“The Zone”, “Underwood Solo”, “The Reserve”, “New American”, “Armenian Themes”), with the author as the central character in each case getting into real-life situations that are by turns absurd and amusing, and sometimes affecting or simply sad. Almost all members of the theatre are involved in the production. The director is Alexander Grigoryan, a highly respected and decorated director and Artistic Director of the Stanislavsky Theatre.

GPM actively supports initiatives in culture and the arts in all regions where it has a presence. In Armenia, the Company supports the Stanislavsky Russian Drama Theatre, one of Yerevan’s outstanding cultural institutions and a popular space for stagings of works by Russian and Armenian writers.

“GeoProMining works hard to strengthen cooperation between Russia and Armenia, including in culture and the arts,” GPM General Director Roman Khudoliy said. “As an international company we fully understand the importance of information and cultural exchange, and projects such as this one not only lead to greater knowledge of the Russian language but also boost mutual understanding between our countries.”
