The Seagull Tours Across China
The Seagull, directed by Mikałaj Pinihin, went on tour to the People's Republic of China. The show was performed for five times at four majour venues in four cities, namely Zhuhai, Guangzhou, Xiamen, and Jinan. The host venue in Guangzhou was the famous Guangzhou Opera Theatre.


The Janka Kupała National Theatre is a member of the Silk Road International League of Theatres. It was founded by the Chinese government to promote artistic connections between the member states of the Great and the New Silk Roads. Now the organisation includes more than 80 members from 30 countries. The Chisese tour of The Seagull will be the first event held thanks to the Belarusian-Chinese co-operation within the framework of the International League.

It is not the first visit of the Janka Kupała National Theatre to China, though. In spring 2014, the theatre took part at the Beijin Spring Theatre Festival.
