Belarus Free Theatre serves up food, music, dance and Shakespeare as they share true stories from inmates, executioners, lawyers and families of the executed. More…

'Trash Cuisine' is a play about institutionalized violence and, in particular, about the ability of society, a group or an individual to take the life of another. Narrated by a chef, the play draws on food preparation and consumption, as well as a variety of other devices including music, movement, stand-up, and the works of William Shakespeare, to emphasize the local flavors of violence, as well as humanity's capacity for endurance, life and hope.
