Dangerous Acts Starring the Unstable Elements of Belarus

Comprised of smuggled footage and uncensored interviews, Dangerous Acts gives audiences a front row seat to a resistance movement as it unfolds both on the stage and in the streets. As the members of the Free Theatre confront the choice of either repression at home or exile in the US and the UK, Dangerous Acts reconfirms our belief that the power of art and hope can indeed change the world.
