On the blessed, blind and sucking is a theatrical creation by members of BFT’s theatre laboratory, Fortinbras, the only independent arts school in Belarus, which was founded by Nicolai Khalezin in 2007. Set in a one-room apartment on the outskirts of Minsk, the production centres around a young girl called Zhenya as she sets out to uncover the secret histories of her own family.
