Natalia Kaliada - Co-founder, Free Belarus Theatre

Belarus is Europe's last old-fashioned dictatorship, a country where political dissent gets you beaten up and locked up. HARDtalk speaks to one Belarussian who has refused to be cowed by President Lukashenko's iron fist. Natalia Kaliada co-founded the Belarus Free Theatre almost a decade ago. Directors, actors and even the audience have all faced arrest and imprisonment, but still their shows go on. Is drama an effective tool of resistance?
