A co-production in-development, There are No Gays in Chechnya will premiere in its newest form,
at the IMPACT23 Theatre Festival, September 26th – October 1st, 2023.
“When Isaac Mule approached me to be a director for Page1’s new piece, There Are No Gays in Chechnya, I was beyond honoured. We had numerous discussions about previous iterations, Isaac’s vision for future development, and what I could contribute from my experience in physical, intercultural, international theatre creation. The content of this work aligned with mine and MT Space’s values from the beginnings of these conversations and has become even more relevant on a global scale today.”– Pam Patel, Artistic Director.
Combining research and first-hand testimony from a survivor currently living in Canada, There Are No Gays In Chechnya tells the difficult story of the gay purge that is still ongoing in Chechnya.
An MT Space and Page1 Theatre collaboration, this new co-production will have a workshop presentation at IMPACT 23–festival performance dates, development updates, and the show’s cast and creative team to be announced soon!
