Trash Cuisine: Belarus Free Theatre
Belarus Free Theatre return with an inventive and moving drama where food becomes a multi-faceted metaphor for life, death, morality and human endurance.
Using live music, choreography, stunning visual imagery and acting talent from Belarus, the U.S.A, the UK and Australia, Trash Cuisine explores issues behind imprisonment and torture with particular focus on the death penalty, in a dynamic, affecting and nerve shredding performance.
Hugely well received at its première in Amsterdam in October 2012, this innovative piece of theatre was devised and developed from first degree research collected in Asia, Africa, U.S. and Europe by Belarus Free Theatre with the support of Amnesty International.
This is a rare opportunity to experience a provocative and heartbreaking show from the bravest theatre company in the world.
Suitable for age 14 and over.
One of the world's bravest ensembles, Belarus Free Theatre was established in 2005 by Nikolai Khalezin and Natalia Kaliada. The group has no official premises, nor any other facilities. Their performances in Belarus are held secretly, in small private apartments, the location of which, due to the risk of persecution, must constantly be changed. In their work, they demonstrate a spiritual resilience and an irreverent humour in the face of their own dilemma. Despite suffering every form of intimidation and harassment, BFT continue to produce great theatre that is recognised internationally.
