London, UK. 02.05.2013. Comedian Omid Djalili at the Comedy Store, in advance of the STAND UP FOR FREE SPEECH benefit gig for Belarus Free Theatre on Monday 27th May. Belarus has the last remaining dictatorship in Europe and the Belarus Free Theatre was founded in March 2005 by.Natalia Kaliada and Nicolai Khalezin. Their performances are often done in secret and are subject to targeting and.censorship by the authorities. They sought political asylum in the UK in 2011 and created a new part of the London. They continue their work with the permanent ensemble left behind in Minsk, who perform and tour around.the world as Belarus Free Theatre. The funds raised from this evening will help support freedom of expression and.will help the company in their work. Photograph © Jane Hobson.
