"Dialogues of August"
Viaporintori, 02600 Espoo
Those who care about Belarus. Who wants to know the truth about the events at the protests and why democracy is needed in Belarus. Since 2020, Belarusians want change and a change of power in the country, but the machine of repression, persecution, and violence continues. Today, there are more than 1,500 political prisoners behind bars, and we do not know who of them will survive.
The plot of the play is simple and touching. The story of an ordinary married couple with two small children who did not freely become participants in the first days of events on August 9. When caring and brave people stood up against violence and without borders in the country.
This is a play about Belarusians and their choices, the desire for justice with faith in the future.
