Creative freedom is under threat in Russia and its neighboring post-Soviet states, and artists are making their stand on stages, public squares, and screens. Join PEN America in conversation with Natalia Kaliada, co-founding Artistic Director of the courageous underground Belarus Free Theatre and Maria Alyokhina of the Russian protest rock group Pussy Riot, as they share their stories of creativity vs. repression. They are making a rare New York City appearance while on tour with Burning Doors, a searing dramatization of artistic persecution featuring cases including Oleg Sentsov, the Ukrainian filmmaker and writer now serving a 20-year sentence in a Siberian penal colony recognized with the 2017 PEN/Barbey Freedom to Write Award.
