Belarus Free Theatre

I’ve recently heard the latest news about the Belarus Free Theatre. Five members of the company are now permanently resident in London, in exile from Belarus, but still committed to producing new work. The rest of the company remain in Belarus, training, rehearsing and performing in secret, under threat of intimidation and arrest. This change in circumstances means that the company now finds itself in need of funding: there is now a page on the crowdfunding website Sponsume, which includes more information. Donations start at £10 and the aim is to help them set up a UK office and employ a British staff member, whose job will be to find other funding sources so that the company can become self-sustaining. Please help: it’s a nice way of saying, “Welcome to London.”
