A musical performance by Dakh Daughters
Center of Contemporary Art DAKH, Kyiv/Ukraine
Performance | Ukrainian with German and English subtitles
It is like a mirror in which the female actors look at themselves and share their personal stories. What does it mean to be an artist? Does it equal a life full of joys and pleasures? Is the whole world in fact a theater?
The Dakh Daughters singers are used to wearing makeup on stage—their style is a bleached “puppet” face. Yet their real mask is their stage presence. This basic neutral cover unites different characters, different destinies, different sounds, and the voices of each band member.
This musical performance tells the stories of actors without makeup, resulting in the creation and composition of poems and songs.
