Performance Notes

× Armed with musical instruments in hand, these seven actresses create a life-affirming performance about love, freedom, and beauty which – at the end of the day – will save the world. Immerse yourself in an experimentally-creative space where the walls of boring routine are broken, and the music and dramatic art genres collide; becoming a neutral ground for the Dakh Daughters to traverse.These absolutely unique, semi-fairytale beauties possess the capability to hyperbolize characters and involve the audience playing on our emotions, shaking us with a roar worthy of Laibach. With lyrics based on classical Ukrainian poetry Dakh Daughters develop the context needed for today’s world while creating an atmosphere of a French saloon where Mireille Mathieu befriends Marilyn Manson.
