The Maria

★ ★ ★ ★ "This is what makes the show remarkable. It is a cry of protest yet, at the same time, is imbued with belief in the possibility of a better future." The Guardian 

If scars are sexy, Minsk must be the sexiest city in the world...

Strip clubs, underground raves and gay pride parades pulse beneath the surface of a city where sexuality is twisted by oppression.

A love letter to a home that exiles those willing to fight for it, Minsk, 2011 celebrates and mourns a land that has lost its way.

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to experience a provocative and heartbreaking show from a radical company.

In Russian with English subtitles.
