The seven women in Dakh Daughters do as they please. They call the genre freak cabaret, and have positioned themselves in a noman’s land between theatre and music. Every song is a spectacle and a story in itself. The attitude is punk, the dance is burlesque ballet and the music is electronica and folk. With whitened faces, sooty eyes and blood-red lips they look as if they have stepped straight out of a silent movie. But Dakh Daughters do not make a habit of being silent or sitting still. The ensemble made a courageous, uncompromising decision in 2013 when they performed 0 18 in Independence Square in Kiev during the protests, which eventually led to the Ukrainian revolution. All of the members are both actors and musicians, and as the name of the ensemble suggests, they are all children of the DAKH Centre of Contemporary Arts in Ukraine. The responsibilities of the members of the ensemble include singing, screaming, speaking, dancing, acting, doing stunts and playing fifteen different instruments.
