In solidarity with the peaceful protests against Aleksandr Lukashenko’s regime in Belarus, a small group of graduate students of the Slavic Department at Harvard will be performing a reading of “Insulted. Belarus(sia),” a new topical play by Andrei Kureichik.
The event will be live streamed via youtube on Wednesday, October 7, 5-7pm.
A discussion with the author and translator will follow.
No previous knowledge of the Belarusian protests or history is necessary. The play—performed in English—speaks for itself.
It is a fascinating example of art “responding” to history-in-the-making in real time and will appeal to anyone interested in Eastern Europe, (post-)Soviet space, and the relationship between art and politics.
