Grey, soviet, oppressive. These were some of the words people used to describe Belarus before my first visit. I wanted to find out about the state of youth culture in this buffer zone between Russia and Europe, and how did youth culture compare in Minsk to other capital cities.


Kienjuice are a professional team of break dancers from Minsk who are competing in and winning BBoy battles around the world. They showed me the other side of Belarus and this is their story.
