Creating provocative theater carries great personal risks: emotional, financial and artistic. For the members of the Belarus Free Theatre, there are additional risks: censorship, imprisonment, and worse. Dangerous Acts goes behind the scenes with this internationally acclaimed troupe of imaginative and subversive performers who, in a desolate country choked by censorship and repression, defy Europe’s last remaining dictatorship.
 
Smuggled film footage and uncensored interviews give audiences a front row seat to a resistance movement as it unfolds both on the stage and in the streets. As a dubious new presidential election looms in Belarus, the KGB targets the members of the Belarus Free Theatre, threatening them and their families. Torn between facing repression at home or going into exile abroad, these brave performers demonstrate how the power of art and hope can change the world. [subtitles]
