Dash Arts creates artistic experiences that change the way we see the world. Founded in 2005 by Artistic Directors, Josephine Burton and Tim Supple, Dash Arts has rapidly emerged as a unique international creative force, producing new theatre, dance, music and art events in collaboration with exceptional artists from abroad.
Dash Arts travels across continents to shed new light on great cultures and creates work through intensive periods of Research and Development. Our next major project is an artistic journey through the diverse lands, people, stories and cultures of the former Soviet Union. This will culminate in a series of new works created in collaboration with artists from the region.

Dakha Brakha


Dakha Brakha

Thurs 23rd June | 8pm |

Rich Mix, 35-47 Bethnal Green Road, London, E1 6LA

We are very pleased to be welcoming back to London the amazing Dakha Brakha -  the phenomenal Ukrainian 'ethno-chaos' band.  After playing their first London gig in 2014 as part of Dash Blaze, they have taken WOMAD, Late Night with Jools Holland and the country by storm. 

The name Dakha Brakha is original, outstanding and authentic.  It means 'give/take' in the old Ukrainian language. Accompanied by Indian, Arabic, African, Russian and Australian traditional instrumentation, the quartet’s astonishingly powerful and uncompromising vocal range creates a trans-national sound rooted in Ukrainian culture.

Tickets £13-£15

Presented by Dash Blaze, Rich Mix and the Nest Collective.
