The Belarus Free Theatre is on the run. No longer welcome in the capital, Minsk, the group is touring the world with its play “Being Harold Pinter,” which combines the words of the famous British playwright with the testimony of Belarusian political prisoners. The play has performed to sold-out audiences in Chicago. The company’s co-creator Natalia Kaliada tells us about her theatre and life under Europe’s last dictatorship. Also, in his Friday film commentary, contributor Milos Stehlik examines the work of the brave Belarusian filmmaker Viktor Dashuk.
