"It's hard not to applaud this fearless, tireless company - but that's not the only reason to see Eurepica. Challenge., which brings together 12 short plays from Europe, Russia and the US."
Maxie Szalwinska, Metro, 26 July 2011

* * * * "Vladimir Shcherban’s fine staging deftly masters the contrasts between the plays, and the shifts in tone within them, using shiny new luggage as the only props and a giant screen from which huge faces, sometimes only the mouths, smile on us or threaten."

* * * * * "Political theatre is often a matter of choice for British artists. For the members of the Belarus Free Theatre, you feel it is a creative necessity. It is their only means of registering a protest against a dictatorship that seeks to deny them a living and subjects them to endless harassment. But what strikes me about the two shows they have brought to London is their wit, vitality and inventiveness".
Michael Billington, The Guardian, 18 February 2008 (Being Harold Pinter; Generation Jeans, Soho Theatre)

"What excited me most was Belarus Free Theatre... The paradox is that one emerged from the show with a strange hope for Belarus driven by the ability of its artists to confront the truths about an oppressive society".

"It is as gripping and accomplished piece of theatre as you'll find in London this year... The dialogue, in Russian with English subtitles, is spat out with the ferocity of machine-gun fire...this is world-class theatre, built on the guts of raw experience".

Foyer Installation
SEC_ RITY IS NOT COMPLETE WITHOUT U
by Holly Waddington & The Militia Canteen

The installation in the foyer is a direct response to Eurepica. Challenge. The artist has subverted the use of the bar from one kind of ‘waiting area’ into another; a playfully controlled and monitored waiting room suggestive of an airport lounge, customs lobby, or other bureaucratic foyer. Two uniform clad officials perch inside their rather flimsy security booths and attempt to hold court, dominate and intimidate the audience as they enter the space. With only blank stares as their armour, their absurdity climaxes as they begin to ooze the toxic filth reflecting the dark and grotesque underbelly of bureaucracy. 

The piece is performed by artists Hannah Hewetson and Nemonie Craven. Known collectively as The Militia Canteen. Holly Waddington is a designer working in theatre, dance, film and performance. At the heart of all her work is a fascination with the fantastic and the mundane and the point at which they come together. She studied Fine Art at Oxford University and Scenography at Laban and was a finalist in the 2007 Linbury Prize. She has worked as an assistant costume designer on films such as Stephen Spielberg’s War Horse, Mike Leigh’s Another Year and Happy Go Lucky and Stephen Poliakoff’s Glorious 39.


Photography Exhibition
LETTERS: COURAGE AND PAIN
Andrey Dubinin

The exhibition featured in the Almeida Bar forms part of a larger collection currently being exhibited in other European capital cities.

On 19 December 2010, in response to the undemocratic presidential elections, a peaceful protest was held in Minsk. The police responded aggressively with beatings and mass arrests. To date, 32 people arrested during this protest are still being held in KGB prisons across Belarus.

The exhibition comprises translated extracts from letters written by political prisoners to their families since their imprisonment last year. Andrey’s photographs capture the moment that these letters are received and read. The photographic portraits are of wives, sisters, mothers and children of those political prisoners.

This exhibition is organised by Free Belarus Now in partnership with Vyzvalenne Civil Initiative.

Message from the families involved in Andrey's exhibition:

"It's been seven months since the events of December 19, 2010 on Independence Square in Minsk.

This day divided our lives into "before the 19th" and "after the 19th" ... Before the 19th, we had a normal human existence in a not very prosperous country, living side by side and together with people who wanted change and had not seen any other path.

After the 19th, "ordinary" life stopped ... We knew nothing about the fate of our relatives, and we searched for them everywhere. When we first met at the doors of the KGB detention centre, we didn’t know each other. We didn’t know what awaited us, how many days and nights we would jump at every ring of the doorbell with hope, and how many hopes would be dashed ... But Olga Bondarenko – at that point we didn’t know her name –  said, "I fear this may take some time. We have to unite ... ".

We have gained valuable experiences we didn’t wish for ... We have learned more about people now than in the whole of our lives so far. We have learned how many good people had always been living close to us. This exhibition has been made possible thanks to the author Andrey Dubinin, and to all those wonderful people in the UK and Belarus for whom Belarus is not just a geographical concept. Thank you very much! We are grateful for your unfailing  attention to us and our country, and we constantly feel your support.

And we are grateful that we are together."
