What happens when you’re declared an enemy of the state simply for making art? Where do you belong when your government suppresses your basic right to expression? And how do you survive in one of the most brutal prison systems in the world?
Featuring Pussy Riot’s Maria Alyokhina in her stage debut, this blazing new contemporary theatre piece from the refugee-led Belarus Free Theater (BFT) draws on the company’s own experience of political oppression and continues their campaign to stand up for artistic freedom and human rights across the globe. BFT is the only theatre in Europe banned by its government on political grounds. It shares stories of persecuted artists, living under dictatorship, who will not be silenced.
Performed in Russian and Belarusian with English surtitles.
Tickets: General Admission: Regular $25+, Student/Youth: $10
