Dakh Daughters

PERFORMANCE

Dakh Daughters

Date: Saturday, May 9, 2020, 8 pm
Price: $45, $40.50 Friends, $33.75 students and seniors

Join us for an exhilarating theatrical experience unlike any you’ve seen before. Seven actresses armed with a full set of strings, keyboards, percussion, and vocals create a spellbinding performance that breaks the walls of everyday music.

 

The Ukraine-based Dakh Daughters are known for creating an atmosphere of a French cabaret where Edith Piaf befriends Marilyn Manson, and intense moments of roaring anger swiftly give way to tender scenes of love and beauty.

Like the band DakhaBrakha, the Dakh Daughters got their start at Kyiv’s Dakh Contemporary Arts Center and they share many of the same influences and some of the same members.

 

This presentation is part of our 2019/20 Performing Arts season, Listening to Each Other, which pays tribute to the role of the performing arts in connecting communities, spurring social change, and celebrating diversity.
