Trash Cuisine and Minsk 2011

Two Plays by Belarus Free Theatre

Natalia Kaliada and Nicolai Khalezin

Belarus Free Theatre was founded in 2005 in Europe’s last surviving dictatorship and every member of the company has, at one time or another, been imprisoned, threatened or mistreated by the authorities, or they live in fear for their safety. They have all lost their jobs. In retaliation, they defiantly produce, devise and perform award-winning plays with the support of artists around the world.

This volume presents two of the Company’s most recent plays, Trash Cuisine and Minsk 2011 (A Reply to Kathy Acker), performed to much acclaim around the world. It is the first publication in a new partnership between Belarus Free Theatre and Oberon Books in the hope raising the profile of one of the world’s bravest and boldest theatre companies working in extraordinary circumstances.
