On Tour

  • The Seagull. China tour
    November 10-30, 2017
    From November 10th to 30th, the Janka Kupała National Academic Theatre toured across the People's Republic of China with The Seagull. The production was performed in four cities, including Zhuhai, Guangzhou, Xiamen, and Jinan.

A national drama theatre is a great value for each country. It speaks to the audience in the language of its own nation, expresses thoughts and feelings of the nation through its literature. I hope the Janka Kupała National Academic Theatre will correspond to the soul of the nation as much as possible, support traditions, and discover new Belarusian writers, so that to make dreams of our geniuses Kupała, Kołas, Bahdanovič come true about independent, free, educated Belarus.

about
The Janka Kupała National Theatre is the oldest professional theatre in Belarus, the main dramatic venue of the country.
It was founded in September 1920 on the initiative of Fłaryjan Ždanovič, its first artistic director. For many years the Janka Kupała Theatre has been successfully retaining outstanding achievements of the national theatre art, combining traditional values with continuous artistic quest and creative experiments. The repertoire includes about 25 performances of different genres and forms after plays by national classics and modern authors. For this reason theatre actively collaborates with best playwrights, artists, and directors.
