Belarus has been called the "last dictatorship in Europe." Developed through a worldwide competition by Ensemble Free Theater Norway as an international theater action supporting freedom of expression in Belarus.
BDTP consists of 25 plays that were presented over the course of two months by 17 partner theaters in Europe, the United States, Australia, and New Zealand.
Theater director Jean Randich created a course at Bennington to investigate and stage 10 of these plays. Conversation immediately following with director Jean Randich.
Cristian Panaite '05, Aurin Squire whose play Article 119-1 was performed, and Faculty member Danny Michaelson whose play, Oz Revisited, were some of the BDTP selections presented at Bennington College and worldwide on March 25, 2014.
