The “Dakh” Centre of Contemporary Art in Kiev is one of the top addresses for contemporary experimental theatre in Ukraine. This is the artistic home of Dakh Daughters. The seven “daughters”, all of them gifted actresses and musicians, invented a daring aesthetic mix there in 2012: a combination of Ukrainian folklore, punk, cabaret, prog rock, classical music and original texts from Taras Schevchenko to Joseph Brodsky and William Shakespeare. Dakh Daughters accompanied the Euromaidan demonstrations in 2013 with their “Freak Cabaret”. They then went from the barricades on a world tour. In 2017, the septet performed for the first time at the Brecht Festival in Augsburg. For the 2021 online edition, Dakh Daughters take us inside their theatre for the first time, for an auspicious date with Bertolt Brecht, feminism and political songwriting.
