It started with questions of what is important to the people of UK and Belarus: Questions of security, money, family, freedom. Questions of where and how we stand at the edges of this entity called Europe, how we see it as the answer to our problems or a problem to be avoided. We talked about the winners and the losers. Who's getting a free pass and who's getting a raw deal. About oppression, expression, and freedom of movement.
Internationally-acclaimed writer and director Nicolai Khalezin made his first journey to the UK in 2007, arriving in Leeds with his underground company, Belarus Free Theatre, when he met Chris Thorpe of Unlimited Theatre for the first time. Although the two have worked together since, this is the first time they have made a brand new piece as collaborators.
