Belarus Free Theatre
Belarus Free Theatre, described by the New York Times as “one of the world’s boldest and most stimulating underground theaters,” was banned for political reasons. “Discover Love” is a stirring, original drama that took nine years to research. It is based on the true story of Irina Krasovskaya and her husband Anatoly, a businessman who supported the Belarusian opposition movement and one day disappeared without a trace. “Discover Love” follows the traces of Irina’s reaction to the news of her husband’s murder and traces the shock, realization and loss of a love that endures.
Belarus Free Theatre was founded in Minsk in 2005. In 2011, the theater’s artistic directors and co-founders, Natalia Kaliada and Nicolai Khalezin, sought political asylum in the United Kingdom. In the meantime, the theater has relocated its entire ensemble from Belarus.
