FILM: Ukrainian director Oleksandr Dovzhenko’s Earth (1930) telling the story of Ukrainian farmers at the time of the Soviet Revolution with a new soundtrack by DakhaBrakha.
The Dash Arts Dacha is a 12-hour, ever-changing free performance , welcoming audiences through the prism of an Ukrainian family and their friends across a century – from the turbulence at the end of Tsarist imperialist rule, through Soviet socialism, to the contemporary challenges of independence. Films, dressing up, board games and cards, fevered political discussion with guest experts, live music, impromptu theatre performances and late night DJs are all on offer with an endless supply of comforting drinks and snacks.
Dash Arts Dacha is curated by our co-Artistic Directors Josephine Burton and Tim Supple, designed by Bryan Woltjen and packed with musicians and actors. It forms part of our on-going REVOLUTION17: an explosive season of performance from artists across the countries that used to be part of the Soviet Union.
