Belarus, Europe’s last totalitarian regime, has been in the news since December’s controversial presidential election. In the protests that followed, members of the Belarus Free Theatre were detained by the Belarusian KGB. With their lives threatened, the company escaped, and recently presented a show in New York called “Being Harold Pinter.” BFT co-founder Natalia Kaliada tells Kurt what it was like to be imprisoned in Minsk, and about her new status as an exile.
