With their political status still unclear back in their homeland, members of the Belarus Free Theater will be returning to New York next month for a five week run at La MaMa, which along with the Public Theater has offered the group an “artistic residency” as a gesture of solidarity. Beginning April 13, the troupe, which fled Belarus in December during a crackdown by the country’s authoritarian president, Aleksandr G. Lukashenko, will perform three of its original works, including the New York premiere of “Discover Love,” a meditation on marriage and political repression. Rounding out the program are “Being Harold Pinter” and “Zone of Silence,” both of which were critically praised when performed at the Public Theater’s Under the Radar Festival in January.
