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.
A new play in English, Trash Cuisine, by the Belarus Free Theatre, will be shown at the Young Vic theatre in London on 30 May – 15 June 2013.

Welcome to the Capital Punishment Café! Our chef’s specials today include electrocution, hanging and lethal injection. And save some room for dessert, because we’ve got firing squad and stoning. Can I take your order?
Banned from performing in their home country, Belarus Free Theatre serve up food, music, dance and Shakespeare as they share true stories from inmates, executioners, human rights lawyers and families of the executed.
This provocative and urgent show pierces the imagination with moments of the darkest humour as it challenges capital punishment in our contemporary world, where 95 countries still carry out the death penalty.
Actors including Joanna Lumley, Sam West, Ralph Fiennes, Alan Rickman, Mark Rylance and Simon Callow have recorded video messages to David Cameron highlighting the plight of political prisoners held under the autocratic regime of the Belarusian dictator, Alexander Lukashenko.
The initiative has been organised by the Belarus Free Theatre as part of the Free Belarus Now campaign, and marks Wednesday’s second anniversary of the rigged election that returned Lukashenko to power and a period when thousands of peaceful protesters were arrested.

Няхай моўныя маркёры кшталту “масавых беспарадкаў” і “дэстабілізацыя сітуацыі” засталіся незразумелымі англамоўнай большасці (на экранах па-ангельску дубляваўся толькі сінопсіс сцэн), асноўнае пасланне “свабодаўцаў” публіцы было прынята і зразумета. Нібы пацвярджаючы гэта, “Глобус” то смяяўся, то заміраў так, што ў амфітэатры можна было пачуць палёт камара.
У Лёндане ў тэатры Globe у рамках тэатральнага фэстывалю Globe to Globe, прымеркаванага да сёлетняй алімпіяды, адбылася прэм’ера “Караля Ліра” ў пастаноўцы беларускага “Свабоднага тэатру”. – Рэпартаж Сяргея Шупы на сайце Радыё Свабода.
Здымак: Свабодны тэатар
The reaction to the Kupalaŭski Theatre trip to London has been mixed among both British – to whom Belarus is of interest – and local Belarusians; visitors’ comments on this site are good evidence of that. Many have decided to go to see the play, some of them emphasised not mixing art and politics, a few decided to stage a protest nearby instead.
The local diaspora has mostly got excited with the unusual event: until recently it was more likely to see in Britain military choirs from Belarus performing Russian Kalinka-Malinka, than truly Belarusian art. We hope the Bloomsbury theatre will be full tonight and we will there too – occasions to see Kupalaŭski’s plays don’t happen often.
Sadly, the Belarusian government uses arts in its it’s own political games. Media in Belarus have been writing about the Kupalaŭski Theatre touring Britain and performing for charity. They are keeping quiet about the fact that the whole tour will consist of only one performance and it will not be charitable, unless that is what a free entry means. They are not saying that the performance has been organised in opposition to the exiled Belarus Free Theatre playing King Lear in Belarusian on the most prestigious English stage as part of the most exciting theatrical event of the year. All suggests that the Kupalaŭski Theatre tour was conceived in retaliation for an unsuccessful attempt by the Belarusian Ambassador to persuade the Shakespeare Globe to cancel the invitation to the Belarus Free Theatre. The Globe to Globe festival organisers pointed out to the Ambassador that politics and arts don’t always go along easily.
A year after the first presidential elections, the Naša Niva newspaper wrote that the main outcome of the President’s efforts had been a fundamental split in the Belarusian society. Tonight another … though small comparing to what is happening in Belarus will be drawn in. It’s fantastic that we have a chance to see the Kupalaūski; pity they could not bring the Tutejšyja (Locals) – their most spoken about production since Independence – it’s banned in Belarus.
