Belarus Free Theatre: Burning Doors

Saturday, 1 October, 2016 - 19:30

Belarus Free Theatre: Burning Doors
Tickets: £12/£10 concessions + booking fee
Click Here to book online.

In this blazingly contemporary new work, Belarus Free Theatre combine forces with Pussy Riot’s Maria Alyokina to share stories of persecuted artists, living under dictatorship, who will not be silenced. Burning Doors interrogates what happens to people when they are declared enemies of the state simply for making art. How the meaning of home and displacement reframes under systematic coercion and ideological warfare.

This brand new production blends sensuous theatricality and vigorous physicality to shine a light on total suppression of artistic freedoms, drawn from the real-life stories of iconoclastic Russian performance artist Petr Pavlensky, incarcerated Ukrainian filmmaker Oleg Sentsov and Pussy Riot's Maria Alyokhina.
