7pm. £30 (including a Belarusian feast home cooked to our family recipes and complimentary wine).
Join us for the next Kitchen Revolution supper club – an intimate evening of dinner, debate and dissent, curated by Belarus Free Theatre.
Kitchen Revolution is a series of evenings that combine supper and secrecy, all served with a dash of sedition. Guests will enjoy a feast of home-cooked Soviet food and wine accompanying a lively discussion on the theme of climate and environment.
In the dark days of the Soviet Union, dissidents and intellectuals would gather in each other’s homes to talk, argue and dream about one thing – freedom. These whispered conversations, which would have been deemed treasonous if held in public, ultimately coalesced into actions which helped overthrow the repressive Soviet system. This was nicknamed the ‘kitchen revolution’.
Decades later and a world away, Britain’s hard-won freedoms are being eroded, as too many of us sink into political apathy, and a stultifying conservatism envelops the creative arts. It’s time for a new and more public kitchen revolution, time to turn up the volume on the kitchen table whispers of the past, and to encourage everyone to consider how artists should respond when democracy comes under threat.
Part of Season for Change, a UK-wide programme of cultural responses celebrating the environment and inspiring urgent action on climate change.
