Belarus Free Theatre’s Natalia Koliada: Minsk 2011

7th July 2012



The Co-Artistic Director of the exiled radical Belarus Free Theatre talks to Diana Damian about the making of Minsk 2011, part of this year’s London International Theatre Festival, and about citizenship and theatre as a political site. Recorded at Young Vic, 19 June 2012.
