Belarus Free Theatre: Burning Doors
Tickets: SOLD OUT
Click Here to join the waiting list.

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.

Hetain Patel: Preview of American Man
Tickets: This preview performance is exclusively for Falmouth Student Season Ticket holders.
Click Here to book online.

Hetain Patel’s new one-man show, American Man, imagines a not too distant future where celebrity power and political correctness have reached new heights; where Barack Obama’s post Presidential job is the new head of Apple computers; where Stephen Hawking and Oprah Winfrey provide live
translation for political speeches and rap concerts.

Combining seamless vocal and physical impressions with his characteristic wit and humour, Hetain presents a personal, sometimes dark, outlook on a world that bombards us with contradicting ideas about who and how we should be, and where freedom walks hand in hand with guilt.
