It's the guerilla theatre company that Alexander Lukashenko doesn't want you to see. Today and tomorrow, the Belarus Free Theatre will be performing at Georgetown University's Davis Performing Arts Center. Our friends at the WashPost were kind enough to set the stage:
So in Minsk, the company's home city, actors perform in tiny apartments, texting their location at the last minute to avoid harassment by government officials. They perform in bars and tell the authorities the gathering is a holiday party; they perform in the woods and say it's a wedding. Many of the actors have lost their day jobs, some of the audience members have been arrested.
