This event has been cancelled
Due to unanticipated development, Dakh Daughters has cancelled their Western US and Canada tour. These artists are committed to sharing their music and messages about love, freedom, and beauty. They look forward to rescheduling and performing in Nanaimo in the near future.
A Port Theatre Spotlight Series Presentation
Underground Ethno Punk Cabaret
Armed with musical instruments in hand, these seven actresses create a life-affirming performance about love, freedom, and beauty which – at the end of the day – will save the world.
Immerse yourself in an experimentally-creative space where the walls of boring routine are broken, and the music and dramatic art genres collide; becoming a neutral ground for the Dakh Daughters to traverse. These absolutely unique, semi-fairytale beauties possess the capability to hyperbolize characters and involve the audience playing on our emotions, shaking us with a roar worthy of Laibach. With lyrics based on classical Ukrainian poetry, Dahk Daughters develop the context needed for today’s world while creating an atmosphere of a French saloon where Mireille Mathieu befriends Marilyn Manson.
