#LoveOverVirus nods towards BFT’s continuing collaboration with the celebrated Belarusian writer, Alhierd Bacharevic, which began this year with Dogs of Europe. This winter, BFT will premiere The Most Recent Book by Mr. A underground in Minsk – marking the first time the company has tackled a fairy-tale. Based on Bacharevic’s latest novel, the production will scale the heights of the magical and absurd in a blazingly contemporary theatrical fairy-tale for grown-ups.
