Re-staged by firelight in the haunting portrait gallery, at the venue where it was created, the Historic Grade 1 Listed Baroque Mansion, Kings Weston House.
Seven performers combine in a thrilling spectacle that pays tribute to surrealist artist Max Ernst’s 1930 collage-novel ‘A Little Girl Dreams of Taking the Veil.’ A violent criticism of man, told through a nightmarish succession of sexually subversive and religiously abusive images – where love somehow remains ever present.
Listed in the top 10 dance productions of 2015 in The Observer Critics Review, Da-Da-Darling is beautiful, terrifying and farcical, a kaleidoscopic world of intoxicating sights and sounds.
Precision-crafted and subversively beautiful

★★★★★ Three Weeks
Utterly captivating… a triumph
★★★★★ Fresh Air Radio
The dancers… are phenomenal
If David Lynch made multi-layered dance performance…
★★★★ To Do List
lurid provocative posturing…nightmarish, chilling and bizarre
★★★★ Broadway Baby
On Friday night, join us after the show to celebrate the centenary of the Cabaret Voltaire and the inception of Dada with a party until the early hours. There will be interactive performances, games, DJ’s, and cabaret acts… The world’s still a mess, and as in 1916, we need to imagine it all again. Come in costume or not – whatever makes you feel hot!
