Seven girls, 15 musical instruments and an incredible mix of music and performance spawned by Kyiv's Dakh Contemporary Art Centre they are the Dakh Daughters, actresses turned freak-cabaret band, and are one of the most unusual, provocative and electric acts in Ukraine today.
Just imagine, seven young women made-up to look like actresses from black-and-white silent movies with bleached faces, smoky eyes and bloody-red lips. Yet they are anything but silent, storming the stage playing numerous musical instruments, singing, screaming, dancing and doing all sorts of crazy stunts on stage making a spectacular performance that leaves you taken aback! The nature of the phenomenon of Dakh Daughters lies in their name â€“ they are daughters of the theatre, actresses in the first place, meaning their every musical composition is a mini-performance.
