Welcome to "DAKH" Contemporary Art Center!

3, 4 and 30, 31 of March at 19:00 CCA "DAKH" pleased to present solo-performance after KLIMs play Eighth DayAN IDIOT

Directed by Vladislav Troiskyi. Performer: Dmytro Iaroshenko (Prince Myshkin)
our individuality is a set of seriated mistakes our personality is a courage to not repeat them

Christmas. Scantily lit room, candle in the window and him, whose true name is an Idiot. He is waiting. He knows she wont come but he is waiting. And we are waiting together with him. After all, there is no difference between dreams and real occurrences as there is no time in that labyrinth where our souls wander in search of highest synthesis of life getting to some places and rooms where the same things happen all the time. This difference between visible and outward and invisible and inner and this inconsistency between his vision and what the those around him have been always seeing he is trying to explain to us, explaining it, thus, to himself. There is neither fear of the death nor regret left in him only the compassion for others and for himself.

5, 10 and 17 of March at 19:00 Theatre "Practicum" and CCA "DAKH" pleased to present performance by Vira Makovii`s play "BUNA".

"Buna" - one of the best plays of Vira Makovii. Some kind of "parents and children" in carpathian mood, specifically "grandmothers and children". But there is nothing same with Turgeniev or Elegy. It is a poignant parable about the gap between generations which moves from the extremes to extremes. They do not even try to listen to each other. Unemployment, emigration, despair - families are destroyed from within and from without. To go or to stay? Begin to race for a Dream or preserve family values?

Tolerate bullying or begin the liberation struggle? What keeps these people at home? Performance of Theater "Practicum" enters into dialogue with young people, putting an edge no one "eternal question".


The language of the performance is Ukrainian

5, 19, 26 of March at 13:00 Theatre "Practicum" and CCA "DAKH" pleased to present performance for children "My name is Peter".

Sometimes children feel themselves lonely and everyone is trying to teach them, but don't try to understand. So children search the consolation and own space in the video games and try to escape from the reality. But sometimes games have so strong influence that it's hard to understand where is the game and where is the reality.

Peter Pan is undeniable idol for ten-years-old Theo. A guy dreams about life in Neverland, where he'll never become adult. Theo wants to live in the fantastical world with no rules and no limits, where is allowed to bite the nails, to swallow chewing gums, to say bad words, to fight pirates, to fly, to go to bed whenever you want and don't brush your teeth. Theo imitates the fairy Peter and steals a little girl Jenny. They are going to live together in the old abandoned playground which becomes their own Neverland. But at which point the children's game stops to be innocent and safe? When Theo fell in love or when he heard the first 'Kill!'?

The performance My name is Peter delicately helps children to understand serious important things through the play. For parents it gives useful thoughts about how better to understand world's explorers, about how it's important to support children's dreams, about how to listen and to hear these little personalities.

12 March at 19:00 Laundry Theatre and CCA "DAKH" pleased to present collage-performance "We Exist"

We Are performance-collage made of memories about our fight for our own identity. We are trying to understand what is the task of our generation and how responsible do we feel to our history. Speculations and reflections. Theres a lot behind us, infinity ahead us, but changes will take place only after we realise that We Are.

Teatr-Pralnia (Laundry Theatre) combines things which highly unlikely to go together. Things like important and ordinary, general and particular, small and grand, mind and soul, theatre and laundry. We try to use our quest and the asked questions to wash the hearts, to remove stains from souls, to refresh minds, to cleanse the conscience. Teatr Pralnia the theatre of synthesis. We have human actors and artificial actors. In our performances we want to speak about things challenging, important, essential; about important things : a person, a country, a nation.

Opera-circus "BABYLON"
"NOVA OPERA" theatre

Directed by Vlad Troitskyi
Music by Roman Grygoriv, Illia Razumeiko

Opera-circus "BABYLON" by "NOVA OPERA" is a story of birth and death of metaphoric "tower". It is based on Biblical legend about conflict between man and God, extrapolated on urban tragedy of the modern city.

The mix of languages and peoples is transmitted by the mix of contrasting musical styles: avant-garde and pseudo-baroque, trip-hop and rock, shamanic folk and electronic techno, allusions to Italian opera and French chanson.

The operas libretto is based on Biblical texts (The Book of Genesis, Apocalypse) with allusions to Old Greek Mythology (the image of Cassandra) and present-day literary texts (Viktor Pelevins Generation P). The vocal part uses the texts of folk songs, Latin prayers, words and verbal constructions from 19 different languages (including Mongolian and Chinese).

The structure of opera-circus is a parody on classic XIX century-opera. It includes the overture, alternating pathetic choral and dance scenes, arias, duets and ensembles. The shows staging combines the elements of circus, performance, and instrumental theatre which are united by dynamic lightening, VJing, and eclectic costumes.

The variety of vocal techniques (classical singing, throat singing, jazz improvisation, folk vocal) is mixed with the sound of instruments: prepared piano, toy piano, French horn, bass-clarinet, double bass, cello, guitar and urban drum-set.

Dakh Theater presents its new project - Dakh Daughters Band!

Seven graceful girls. Fifteen musical instruments. Rapid merging of styles and unexpected sound collages. Seven outstanding personalities with different music backgrounds (Nina Garenetska - "DakhaBrakha" band, Ruslana Khazipova - "Perkalaba" band, Tanya Hawrylyuk - solo project "TanyaTanya", Solomiia Melnyk - projects "Powerful Women" and "Soloma project", Anna Nikitina - project "Chanson Cabaret", Natalia Halanevych and Zo - ballet "BiZoN").

The secret of unifying power of the band is theater, because all the Dakh Daughters are actresses in the first place. Thus, each musical composition by Dakh Daughters is a mini-performance.
