Freedom to act.

Freedom to take responsibility.

Freedom to lift up those bent down.

Freedom to shout where others have been silenced.

An anthology of short essays on the concept of freedom, curated by Belarus Free Theatre, and published to coincide with their 10-year anniversary celebrations.

On Freedom collects powerful polemics from 34 contributors - artists, directors, activists, politicians - all of whom have worked with or supported Belarus Free Theatre over the last decade. Each essay is between 300 and 500 words.

With cover artwork by Ai Weiwei, On Freedom is a timely manifesto on what the changing definition of freedom looks like today, from the UK to Belarus. It features essays from, amongst others: actor, Michael Sheen; director of Liberty, Shami Chakrabarti; theatre director Michael Attenborough; fashion designer and activist, Vivienne Westwood; leading human rights lawyer and founder of Reprieve, Clive Stafford Smith; artist, Eric Fischl; director of English PEN, Jo Glanville; theatre director David Lan; chair of Arts Council England, Sir Peter Bazalgette; with a foreword authored by BFT patron Sir Tom Stoppard.
