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 and the main dramatic venue of the country.
It was founded in September 1920 under the guidance of Fłaryjan Ždanovič, its first artistic director.
For many years the theatre has been successfully sustaining outstanding achievements of the national dramatic art, successfully combining traditional values with a continuous creative quest and artistic experiments.
The repertoire includes about 25 productions of different genres and forms staged after plays by classic and modern authors, both from Belarus and abroad. For this reason, the theatre actively collaborates with the best playwrights, designers, and directors.
