Theatre of Gulags is a theatrical installation exploring the dark history of the Soviet Union labour camps, and the full-scale theatres that were built inside them. Theatres behind the fence were filled with artists from distinct theatrical and ethnic backgrounds – all prisoners.

Walk through the camp corridor to discover the stories of four prisoners behind the hessian fabric curtain. A Queer Roma man, a Ukrainian theatre revolutionary, a Jewish puppetry maker, and the first woman to direct an Opera, all trapped inside the gulag walls. They will tell you about their journeys – from their homes, to the black NKVD cars, to the train carriages with no windows, to barracks, and onto the stage. Continue walking through the corridor, until you find your seat in a GULAG theatre, and the show of truth will begin.
