Dakh Daughters

All girls freak cabaret from Ukraine

Part of the Festival "Utopian Realities – 100 Years of Now with Alexandra Kollontai"

With provocative-political statements and a unique appearance at Kiev’s embattled Maidan, the women band caused quite a furore. The Dakh Daughters (daughters of the “Dakh” theatre, one of Kiev’s most important avant-garde stages) sing of the borderland of an empire, of post-Soviet tragedy, of Donbas, the contested industrial region in eastern Ukraine. A performative-musical slugfest with 15 instruments.
