Seven actresses with musical instruments in their hands create a life-affirming performance about love, freedom, and beauty which – at the end of the day – will save the world. ?Already well known in Kyiv as actresses of the DAKH Theatre, band members can occupy neutral ground between the musical genre and dramatic art, in the right experimentally-creative space. ?Dakh Daughters create an atmosphere of a French saloon, where Mireille Mathieu befriends Marilyn Manson. On occasion, armed with a full compliment of strings, keyboards and percussions, the women shake the audience with a roar in the manner of Laibach (Slovenian avant-garde group), but can swiftly change anger for kindness, turning into fun-loving Hollywood beauties of the 1950’s that dream of tropical vacations in the Caribbean.This completely unique group is ideologically related to the English band – The Tiger Lillies – which has the capability of hyperbolizing characters and involving the public in funny intellectual shows. Song lyrics of these semi-fairytale fairies are based on classical Ukrainian poetry, Nobel-prize winners, their own works, and fragments of popular hits of the past. Drawing on their experiences, the Dakh Daughters easily manipulate the emotions in the audience, changing the rhythm from slow to fast to pausing in just the right places at the right time. Together with their audience, they create rock-operas, demonstrating the desire not only to find new forms of popular music but also to develop the context needed for today’s world. Being one with the rhythm of time, enjoying the creative moment, and accumulating their own energy, the Dakh Daughters develop a space of enormous love around them, breaking the walls of boring routines…
