Belarus Free Theatre to Perform in Chicago Shakespeare Theatre

Chicago Shakespeare Theatre announced Sunday night the shows it will present in the first half of 2013, as part of its World Stages series of global work, much presented in partnership with the British booker and producer Richard Jordan Productions.

Belarus Free Theatre performs "Being Harold Pinter".

The slate includes a return visit to Chicago by the Belarus Free Theatre, a new piece by the Market Theatre of Johannesburg in South Africa, new work by Piccolo Teatro di Milano of Italy and a new British piece that will transport Chicagoans to an apartment somewhere in the city where they then will be confronted by the realities of global human trafficking.

The four-show season opens January 30-February 3 with Minsk, 2011: A Reply to Kathy Acker, a new piece from the Belarus Free Theatre (Being Harold Pinter) with text by Natallia Kaliada with Mikalaj Khaliezin, directed and adapted by Uladzimir Shcherban. It's a lament for the soul of Minsk, in the light of the changes in the city during the repressive Belarusian regime.
