Dakh Theatre - Centre of Contemporary Art

Ukraine / Kyiv


CCA «DAKH» was founded in 1994 by cultural changemaker and avant-garde theatre enthusiast Vlad Troitskyi. Today Kyiv-based experimental contemporary art center is the trendsetter in developing synergies between classical and contemporary art, culture, and tech, uniting communities, cities, countries, and representing Ukraine on the global stage. Several existential phenomena on the Ukrainian and global cultural stage are a spin-off from the Dakh Theatre, an ecosystem of art collaborations, unprecedented synergies and cultural & tech inventions, and a magnet of exceptional talents.
