A scorching piece of theatre: uncompromising, urgent and angry.

FINANCIAL TIMES (for Burning Doors)

Amid the chatter and outrage and belligerence of public conversation today lies a void: the Great Australian Silence. What are we afraid of hearing? Who are we afraid will say it?

The underground theatre revolutionaries of Belarus Free Theatre—Natalia Kaliada and Nicolai Khalezin—have united with some of Australia’s most fearless performers to interrogate the danger of speaking the truth.

From the national conversation to the words we only speak behind closed doors, this rebel posse of international and local conspirators turns a laser eye on the faultlines that lie beneath Australian speech.
