If scars are sexy, Minsk is the sexiest city in the world. Strip clubs, underground raves and gay pride parades pulse beneath the surface of a city where sexuality is met by government oppression. A love letter to a home that exiles those willing to fight for it, Minsk 2011 celebrates and mourns a land that has lost its way. The remarkable company that brought us Being Harold Pinter, Zone of Silence and Discover Love returns to New York with this moving and provocative production. Photo Credit: Nicolai Khalezin
