Belarus Free Theatre

Belarus Free Theatre, the executive arm of Ministry of Counterculture, is an award-winning independent company, committed to producing, educating and campaigning in the related fields of the arts, internationalism, and social justice…

The tireless Belarus Free Theatre, in short, is more than a theatrical marvel. It is, arguably, a theatre of firsts: the first contemporary company to survive, function and flourish both in exile and at home, despite repression; the first to rely on the Internet to direct and create its art; the first to campaign globally for human rights as well as basic artistic freedom; the first to perform before the U.K.’s Parliament.

They seem to defy gravity… Watching them persevere has been inspiring.
