Generation Jeans - Nikolai Kalezin, Natalia Koliada
Repeat: Theatre of the Society for Macedonian Studies, 11/04/2008
Opening: Belarus, 17/03/2006

''A monologue about jeans, rock music and freedom. The story takes place in the Soviet Union, where jeans and rock n' roll are forbidden. If someone sells jeans, they get arrested by the KGB. Then it moves to today's totalitarian regime in Belarus, narrating the arrests -even kidnappings- of its key protagonist and his friends. It is an ode to the generations of people who are not binded by age limits and who struggle for their country's freedom...'' Excerpt from the notes of director Nikolai Khalezin.
