It’s a fancy scene: men and women dressed up to the nines, eating a good meal, drinking fine wines and taking selfies. These ‘dinners in white’ are an elegant tradition where people pay to eat outside, dressed all in white, and it exists in over 70 countries all over the world. In Haiti, one of the poorest countries on the American continent, a theatre group mocked the idea by having their own dinner in white – on a rubbish heap.
On social media, the performers wrote: “This ‘dinner in white’ was created to show the decadence of society. In a country where three quarters of the population can’t even afford to put a meal on the table, this show paints a realistic picture of our slavery through hunger.”
