Russia: Moscow fringe theatre faces ‘censorship’ with eviction

3 November 2014

Founded in the early years of Vladimir Putin’s rule, Teatr.Doc has made enemies with documentary work that explores the social and political fall out from Russia’s slide towards authoritarianism.

In a move that has shaken the international theatrical community, the Moscow authorities have ordered Teatr.Doc to vacate the property on grounds that it had violated property regulations.

Many people think the eviction order masks an illegal attempt to censor one of Moscow’s few independent theatres and turn the premises into something and more profitable and predictable like a cocktail bar or billiard hall.
