1.8 sq. meters – that’s how much space there is for one person in overcrowded Belarusian prisons.
The theatre project supports political prisoners who opposed totalitarian regimes in Belarus and other countries. The play is based on texts that political prisoners have spoken in court and written in letters to their relatives. How do people who have been sentenced to prison for speaking their mind manage now? How did it happen that the law is being violated in the centre of Europe?
There are currently more than 1000 political prisoners in Belarus and this number is growing daily.
