The Centre of Contemporary Arts DAKH
The Centre of Contemporary Arts was founded in 1994 by Vladislav Troitskyi. It is the only private non-commercial theatre in Ukraine.
What does it mean to be a non-commercial theatre in Ukraine? Is it an independence from state’s control in artistic policy or an independence from financial or analythical support? These questions need to be cleared up in many aspects concerning both theatrical management and artistic activity. Perhaps, this is a condition of the theatre functioning model, its aesthetics and its methods of creative work.
During ten years of “DAKH”'s activity (using the methods of probes and mistakes) a strong tendency of developing theatre and artistic style of its director – Vladislav Troitsky have being formed. This is, in a way, an aesthetic message of new theatre generation. It is the experience of so called “dynamic synthesis” of acting and directing methods and stylistic forms of the stage realization. And one of the main spaces helping such an investigation is a space of the Ukrainian musical tradition, an attempt to give it a new life in new theatrical forms.
The actual strategy of the “DAKH” Centre lies in active cooperation with a vast range of state and commercial institutions with an aim to change the cultural situation in Ukraine towards more open forms of art activity and organization, towards a creative dialogue and support of the experimental field of theatre settling up new semi-functional theatre buildings, initiating innovative forms of the theatre education and creating editing centre of theatrical literature.
