About Belarus Free Theatre: School for Fools

A School for Fools is an experimental novella from the avant-gardist writer, Sasha Sokolov. Now directed and adapted by one of our most senior ensemble members, Pavel Haradnitski, this atypical coming-of-age story tells of a young boy living with dual personality disorder. Exploring the conflict between the individual and the outside world some of today’s most urgent concerns are laid bare: can the internal self ever be fully reconciled with the external self? – and can freedom ever co-exist with oppression? Our first online world premiere in BFT’s 15-year history, will be performed and broadcast live from Minsk in the bedrooms, kitchens and bathrooms of our incredible ensemble, most of whom are self-isolating in a country where doctors and journalists face arrest and intimidation for trying to support public awareness of Covid-19; this is a celebration of creativity in the most difficult of conditions. A School for Fools is performed in Russian with English subtitles. Places are free but limited. To book for the premiere register by clicking the 'Watch Now' button.
