Movie Info

Creating provocative theatre carries great personal risks: emotional, financial and artistic. For the members of the Belarus Free Theatre, there are additional risks: censorship, imprisonment, and worse. Go behind the scenes with the acclaimed troupe of imaginative and subversive performers who, in a desolate country choked by censorship and repression, defy Europe's last remaining dictatorship. The film picks up the story in 2010 when the KGB is cracking down on dissenters, sixteen years after Belarus' President Alexander Lukashenko takes power during the breakup of the Soviet Union. Now, as a dubious new presidential election looms, the KGB targets the Free Theatre's founders Nikolai Khalezin and Natalia Koliada who, along with their colleagues, find themselves torn between fighting for their art and for their and their families' safety

Critic Reviews for Dangerous Acts Starring The Unstable Elements Of Belarus

All Critics (10)

Not just another theatrical performance, Unstable Elements acts to live.

June 19, 2014 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

Excerpts of performances from shows such as Being Harold Pinter and Minsk 2011 hint at the visceral power of the group, which the Belarusian authorities apparently view as a threat to national security.

March 30, 2014 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Absurdist dramas staged with grace and ingenuity, these "dangerous acts" draw attention in eloquent and very affecting fashion to the plight of Lukashenko's victims.

Dangerous Acts transcends its contemporary relevance.

Recommended viewing, especially given recent events in Ukraine.

March 28, 2014 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It is startling to see how political opposition and outrage were being mobilised, not primarily by journalism, or social media or established forms of protest, but by theatre.
