Dash Arts will be tongue-in-cheek about this famous 65 years old song contest, whilst also exploring in more depth the stories and the intricate politics behind the scenes, taking us right up to this year’s controversial hosts, Israel. We’ll feature performance artist and self-professed Eurovision fan Richard DeDomenici and expert and media commentator Paul Jordan, aka Dr Eurovision, who wrote his PhD thesis on the subject.
Expect a kitsch, glam, fun-filled and political night including impromptu renditions of favourite contest tunes!
Dash Arts creates artistic experiences that challenge the way we see the world in collaboration with exceptional international artists.
Our regular Dash Cafés feature live music, film, performance, readings and discussion at venues across London. Intimate and informal, the Cafés offer a chance to encounter new ideas, surprising perspectives and unusual artists who shed new light on the regions in which we work.
Our current season of work is EUTOPIA, investigating what it means to be European. EUTOPIA emerged as a direct response to the 2016 EU Referendum. As the UK voted to leave the EU, we felt the need to ask what Europe means. We are focusing our spotlight on Europe with a cross-arts approach that integrates research, development, participation, presentation, and production over several years.
