Dangerous Acts Starring the Unstable Elements of Belarus

HBO made it official last week: Monday night is documentary night on the pay cable station, with year-round programming of new films and encore presentations. Up this Monday is a look at the Belarus Free Theatre, a troupe of performers from a nation that borders Russia and Ukraine. The group creates theatrical works in protest of the country’s strict censorship of the arts — which can lead to criminal charges and imprisonment — and has gained international supporters.
