Belarus Free Theatre bring back – for three performances only – their critically acclaimed duologue between an actor and a DJ, about jeans, rock music and freedom.
The story begins in the Soviet Union. Denim and rock ‘n’ roll were prohibited. Selling jeans meant certain arrest by the KGB. It then moves to the current days of the last dictatorship in Europe – Belarus.
Bringing to life stories of arrests, kidnappings and living in a country controlled by fear, Generation Jeans is an ode to the people who speak out about repression and censorship in their countries and who fight for freedom everywhere.
“You go to the theatre to hear a story; you end up having met a man who, in his mixture of self-mockery and seriousness, shows a spiritual resilience that makes dictatorship look even more inflexible and absurd.” The Guardian
“The most bright theatrical experience in my life” Alan Rickman
