With the participation of the Eufónia Teachers’ Choir

Andrei Kureichyk’s drama shows the first month of the Belarusian protests erupting in August 2020, at which the author also took part until he was forced to leave his homeland. We see those favoured and mistreated by the existing regime who have somehow become actively involved in the eruption of the series of protests. What and how much are we willing to sacrifice for those we love, and in the end, what will we do for love? These are the questions that suffuse the play and animate the characters.

Friday – 1 October – 19:00 Studio Theater, University of Arts
