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.

Putsch Yourself - 25 Years on from the August Putsch
21st September | 7.30pm | Rich Mix, Bethnal Green Road, London, E1 6LA | FREE
25 years ago, as the world watched on enthralled, hardline members of the Soviet Union’s communist party wrestled control from President Mikhail Gorbachev in a coup d'état attempt known now as the August Putsch. Putsch Yourself brings Russian journalist Artem Troitsky, British journalist Lucy Ash, the then British Ambassador to the Soviet Union Sir Rodric Braithwaite and Putsch Yourself Creators together for an evening set to explore the experiences of ordinary people at an extraordinary time, featuring Putsch Yourself’s interactive documentary project constructed from video interviews with individuals who witnessed and participated in the Soviet coup d'état of August 1991. Dash Artistic Director Josephine Burton hosts the event featuring film, discussion, and the notorious tunes of DJ Troitsky.
