Rehearsal Images: Burning Doors

August 12, 2016

Not long until we host Belarus Free Theatre's world premiere at CURVE theatre, Leicester as part of ‪#‎JourneysFest‬ in Leicester.


Burning Doors shares the stories of persecuted artists, living under dictatorship, who will not be silenced.


What happens when you are declared an enemy of the state simply for making art? Where do you belong when your government suppresses your basic right to expression? And how do you survive in one of the most brutal prison systems in the world?

This brand new production blends sensuous theatricality and vigorous physicality to shine a light on total suppression of artistic freedoms, drawn from the real-life stories of iconoclastic Russian performance artist Petr Pavlensky incarcerated Ukrainian filmmaker Oleg Sentsov and PussyRiot'sMaria Alyokhina, who makes her stage debut.
