Belarus Free Theatre - platform discussion


November 4, 2015, Secret location - London postcode SE11

The Kaleidoscope Trust is excited to partner with the Belarus Free Theatre on a platform discussion to be held at the theatre company's 10th anniversary festival in London. 


Belarus Free Theatre presents Staging a Revolution, a two-week festival of performances and discussions in London featuring some of their most acclaimed original productions and reinvigorated classics. Following each performance, a curated panel of experts, including artists, campaigners, journalists and activists will discuss an area related to each taboo topic and generate fresh ideas around taking up action. It is an approach drawn directly from BFT’s work in Minsk where the space for free exchange of ideas and open debate is as valuable as the space in which to see independent theatre.

Following a performance of Minsk, 2011 the Kaleidoscope Trust's Jide Macaulay will join Sam Roddick, artist and activist for the rights of trafficked sex workers, in leading discussion on some of the themes arising in the play - sexuality, oppression and taboos.

Minsk, 2011 is both a love letter to a country that has lost its way and a raw examination of scars of repression in the Belarusian capital where sexual freedoms are oppressed and perverted by the authoritarian regime.

Londoners can support the festival by housing an actor from Belarus
