Video Preview: Belarus Free Theater's BURNING DOORS

Belarus Free Theatre presents Burning Doors from La MaMa on Vimeo.

Where do you belong when your government suppresses your basic right to expression? 
What do you do when your government imprisons you for making art? 
How would you survive one of the most brutal prison systems in the world? 
Belarus Free Theatre combines forces with Pussy Riot’s Maria Alyokhina, who makes her New York stage debut, in a searing performance on how art persists under oppression. Through the prism of persecuted artists who will not be silenced, Burning Doors reveals how artists living under dictatorship illuminate the knife-edge of complacency in democratic societies reminding us of the true cost of freedom and dangers of inertia.

"Visceral. A brutally physical production. An analogue for the ritualised humiliation by Russian authorities."
Time Out

"Savage political satire. Performed with blazing energy and commitment."
Financial Times

"An extraordinary show. Noisy, taboo-busting and brutal to behold."
- A Younger Theatre

"A fiery work of protest theatre that fuses brutality and poetry, philosophy and irreverent satire."

~The Age (Australia)
