Seven actresses who happen to be fantastic singers and multi-instrumentalists come together to create a life-affirming performance about love, freedom and beauty which at the end of the day will save the world. Dakh Daughters create an atmosphere of a French saloon, where Mireille Mathieu befriends Marilyn Manson. On occasion, armed with a full set of strings, keyboards and percussion, the women shake the audience with a roar in the manner of Laibach, but can swiftly exchange anger for kindness, turning into fun-loving Hollywood beauties of the 1950’s that dream of tropical vacations in the Caribbean.

“They are genuinely original – mixing classical minimalism with passionate Ukrainian folk and a touch of ‘freak cabaret’, delivered with punk energy.”

The Guardian

This performance is made possible in part by support from Celebrity Series LIVE PERFORMANCE! Arts for All Innovation Funds.
