  • Paŭlinka. Navapołack
    22 February 2020
    The Janka Kupała National Academic Theatre presented the famous Paŭlinka in Navapołack. The legendary production, which had been listed as a Historical and Cultural Asset of Belarus a few months before, was performed at the Naftan House of Culture....

A national drama theatre is of great value to each country. It speaks to the audience in the language of its people; it expresses thoughts and feelings of the nation through the works of its literature. I hope the Janka Kupała National Academic Theatre will still agree with the Belarusian soul, that it will support traditions and discover new Belarusian writers to achieve the dream of our geniuses Janka Kupała, Jakub Kołas, and Maksim Bahdanovič about independent, free, and educated Belarus.

Artistic director of the theatre
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, combining traditional values with a continuous creative quest and artistic experiments.
Its 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.
