Join Dash Arts at their October café for the UK premiere of documentary SOVIET HIPPIES (2017), an anthropological look into the hippie movement in the USSR, produced in Estonia in collaboration with Germany and Finland.
Revealing unseen archives, psychedelic animations and music from the Soviet underground, the film tells the story of a vast yet unknown movement that looked towards Europe from the other side of the Iron Curtain.
Post-premiere we host a Q+A with director Terje Toomistu and one of the film’s stars, Vladimir Widemann, finishing the night with rocking music.
In partnership with Embassy of Estonia
Dash Arts creates artistic experiences that challenge the way we see the world in collaboration with exceptional international artists.
The 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.
Their 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, Dash 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.
