7, 8 and 22, 23 of June at 20:00 CCA Dakh presents new project - Tse Sho
Idea, director, producer: Vladislav Troitskyi.

TseSho is the unique theatre project combining drama theatre, puppet theatre, live music and the poetry.
Format: music-puppet cabaret It is the cooperation of Ukrainian director Vlad Troitskyi and young theatre group: Theater Pralnia. The members of the project search the new ways of expression by combining different arts. Actors play scenes and sketches with puppets and play instruments at the same time, sing and use the poetry. Also they use folklore songs, children's rhymes and contemporary texts. Music is very important part of the show. As all participants are not musicians but they are actors, so music is born like the word in the role - through feelings and sense. Actors play cello, contrabass, accordion, melodica and drums.
In the performance Tse Sho talk about the dialogue with yourself, about the strange connection with "you internal" and "you external", about memories from childhood, about how children perceive different things such as loneliness, loss, relations between adults, war and which influence does it has on the destiny? Also there are reflections about the relations between people in the contemporary time, about the generations and about calling of every human.

9 of June at 20:00 CCA "DAKH" pleased to present solo-performance after KLIMs play GIRL WITH MATHES

Directed by Vladislav Troitskyi
Performer Elena Lesnikova

"Girl with matches" is the reflection a hundred minutes long. The task to explain what is theatre and actor with a help of matches. It is not simple to retell the contents of the play without a box of matches sought for. The most important task for the author was, probably, to write a play for a woman and to remember once again about death and life which is terminal, broken and full of sufferings, dreams, feelings, global incomprehension of ourselves. And to be oneself is the strangest and the most unclaimed art.
the voice of Lesnikova is beautiful. The play is performed in absolute darkness thats why it is just the voice you can value in a full measure. You can, at least, understand how blind people fall in love. There is no shadow of declamation in it and you want to talk to her right at the time of the play explaining and arguing, reproaching for follies and remembering life occurrences alike. Unfortunately, the format of the play didnt suppose excessive talkativeness of spectator

14, 15 of June at 20:00 CCA "DAKH" pleased to present solo-performance after KLIMs play Eighth Day AN IDIOT

Directed by Vladislav Troitskyi
Performer - Dmytro Iaroshenko (Prince Myshkin)

our individuality is a set of seriated mistakes our personality is a courage to not repeat them

Christmas. Scantily lit room, candle in the window and him, whose true name is an Idiot. He is waiting. He knows she wont come but he is waiting. And we are waiting together with him. After all, there is no difference between dreams and real occurrences as there is no time in that labyrinth where our souls wander in search of highest synthesis of life getting to some places and rooms where the same things happen all the time. This difference between visible and outward and invisible and inner and this inconsistency between his vision and what the those around him have been always seeing he is trying to explain to us, explaining it, thus, to himself. There is neither fear of the death nor regret left in him only the compassion for others and for himself.

18 of June at 20:00 theatre company DollMen and CCA "DAKH" pleased to present performance The Dream of Ridiculous Man

The play is a journey into the dream of a man who imagined an ideal world. Can a person live in a world without evil, lying, jealousy, violence? Or is the world the way its inhabitants are? This text of Dostoevsky, written four years before his death, is a certain quintessence of the writer's ideas and serves as an attempt to rethink Myth, which formed the basis of our modern civilization. This performance is also a kind of experiment and an attempt to actualize the idea of the "poor theater" by J. Grotowsky, when all the external attributes of the theatrical action boil down to its inseparable essence - the live presence of the actor in front of the viewer and their direct contact.
The performance is performed in the original language. Premiere - November 18, 2010 in the theater "Na Chaynoy" in Odessa. It was presented in different cities of Ukraine and Poland. Winner of the theatrical festival "Strawberry Field" 2011, Crimea.

The language of the performance is Russian
Duration - 1 hour

24 of June at 19:00 Theatre "Practicum" and CCA "DAKH" pleased to present performance by Vira Makovii`s play "BUNA"

"Buna" - one of the best plays of Vira Makovii. Some kind of "parents and children" in Carpathian mood, specifically "grandmothers and children". But there is nothing same with Turgeniev or Elegy. It is a poignant parable about the gap between generations which moves from the extremes to extremes. They do not even try to listen to each other. Unemployment, emigration, despair - families are destroyed from within and from without. To go or to stay? Begin to race for a Dream or preserve family values? Tolerate bullying or begin the liberation struggle? What keeps these people at home? Performance of Theater "Practicum" enters into dialogue with young people, putting an edge no one "eternal question".

The language of the performance is Ukrainian

A DAKH (Kiev, Ukraine) joins as new associated member of European Theatre Convention (ETC) in 2016/17

CCA Dakh joined European Theatre Convention (ETC) as associated member thanks to the project "Theatre, Freedom, Dialogue: European networking with theatres from Ukraine and Belarus" in the end of 2015 with the goal to further nourish and develop the newly created relations and contacts. The selection of the theatres, one representing the state subsidized theatres (Kiev Academic Molodij Theatre), the other the oldest independent theatre scene in Ukraine (Dakh Theatre Kiev), took place after discussions with the theatres and the board of directors during the Ukrainian Theatre Showcase in Kiev last December 2015.

The European Theatre Convention (ETC) is a non-profit-making membership organization and a network of European public theatres founded in 1988 with the aims to create, protect and promote theatre art and its linguistic diversity in Europe and beyond; to act as a transnational theatre network to foster cultural diversity and intercultural dialogue; to act as a platform for professional exchange, development and capacity building of theatre-makers in an international context and to advocate for the public theatre sector at EU, member state and local levels. The ETC has become the largest pan-European network of its kind, representing over 40 member theatres in 25 countries, 8,000.000 theatre goers, more than 11,000 taxpaying people employed by public theatres, thousands of artists in over 20 countries and 16,000 performances and public events per year.
