Trash Cuisine

2013

Welcome to the Capital Punishment Café! Our chef’s specials today include electrocution, hanging and lethal injection. Provocative and urgent, Trash Cuisine pierces the imagination with moments of the darkest humour as it challenges the ongoing existence of capital punishment in the contemporary world. 55 countries retain the death penalty in both law and practice, and Europe remains on the list of continents where capital punishment still exists – in 2020 – because of Belarus. BFT serve up food, music, dance and Shakespeare as true stories from inmates, executioners, human rights lawyers and families of the executed take centre-stage.

“Once again, Belarus Free Theatre prove their capacity to stir our consciences through their sensuous theatricality”
