Free Theatre Belarus

Feature

Friday, October 10, 2008

Belarus is called the last dictatorship in Europe. The government censors the arts, so performance troupe Free Theatre Belarus performs secretly, in converted houses, to avoid arrest. American playwright Aaron Landsman went to visit the group in Minsk, and learned what theater is really all about. Produced by David Krasnow and Gretta Cohn.
