WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Trash Cuisine is a play about violence and, in particular, about the ability of society, a group or an individual to take the life of another. The play draws on the works of William Shakespeare, who often referenced capital punishment, and a variety of national cuisines in order to emphasize a local flavor of violence, endurance, life and hope. Live music performed on stage complements a series of stories staged in a variety of ways, bringing them to a common denominator.
Banned from performing in their home country, Belarus Free Theatre serves up food, music, dance and Shakespeare as they share true stories from inmates, executioners, human rights lawyers and families of the executed.
