Belarus Free Theatre

Belarus Free Theatre is a Belarusian underground theatre group.

Under the current political system the Belarus Free Theatre has no official registration, no premises, nor any other facilities. Rehearsals and performances (always free of charge for the public) are normally held secretly in small private apartments, which, due to security and the risk of persecution, must constantly be changed.

On several occasions, performances were given in street cafes and in the countryside, in the woods. Staffs members have been repeatedly harassed by the authorities for their participation in the Belarus Free Theatre activities and the stage director together with other people were sacked from their jobs at state-run theatres.

Famous quotes containing the words free and/or theatre:

    I could buy one
    Tape and get another free. I accept- Ed the deal, paid for one tape and
    Chose a free one. But since I’ve been
    Repeatedly billed for my free tape.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    I can get dressed earlier in the evening with every intention of going to a dance at midnight, but somehow after the theatre the thing to do seems to be either to go to bed or sit around somewhere. It doesn’t seem possible that somewhere people can be expecting you at an hour like that.
    Robert Benchley (1889–1945)
