Synopsis
 
Chernobyl, 1986. As the radiation from the nuclear reactor explosion spread across Belarus, Ukraine, Scandinavia and Western Europe, the forests downwind turned a brilliant red. Nearly 30 years later it remains one of the most contaminated areas in the world today.

The award-winning Belarus Free Theatre return to the Young Vic to explore the profound impact of environmental change through the lens of local myths and legends. Incorporating true stories and native folklore from Belarus, Brazil, Nigeria and India, Red Forest weaves together a tapestry of stories to create a new legend of man and nature.

Featuring live music and choreography, BFT challenges us to face the epic cycle of human and environmental destructiveness.

A co-production by Belarus Free Theatre and the Young Vic. Commissioned by LIFT as part of the Imagine 2020 network, supported by the EU Culture Programme, and Melbourne Festival, Red Forest is scheduled to run from 12 June - 5 July 2014.
