Next Episode of Dangerous Acts Starring the Unstable Elements of Belarus is
not planed. TV Show was canceled.
Minsk, Belarus. Members of the Belarus Free Theatre limber up before a performance. “Life under a dictatorship is very easy,” says Oleg Sidorchik, one of the troupe’s lead actors. “There’s no need to make decisions, and there are no problems." Oleg’s remarks belie his reality: he’s become a political refugee, the Free Theatre lost their home base in 2011, and the group is now staging secret shows in a tiny subterranean space with cracked paint and plank seating. BFT co-founder Natalia Kaliada is undeterred. “Even when none of us knew what would be happening next,” she says, “it was possible to make art out of an absolutely horrible year.” Audiences now get word of upcoming shows via a text message, and are urged to bring their passports in the event of a police raid. About 30 or so people cram into the space to see Oleg perform “Zone of Silence: Sunday Father,” a moving real-life piece about how his 10-year-old son hung himself. (Source: HBO)
