The Dash Café

Wed 5 December - Wed 5 December 7.30pm
Free / Main Space (limited seating)

A Radio Gagarin Special

Let our hair down for the festive season and invite you to ignite your inner babushka! And celebrate Radio Gagarin style – with our comradeship of live music, digital DJ prowess, performance art, cinema, drama, poetry, puppetry, poverty, posterity, sailors, mutineers, heart throbs, Laika, Belka, Strelka and vodka!

This time around the sputnik is being steered by the ladies. Featuring a screening of classic Soviet film work; and mind-blowing edible performance art and VJ sets from the legendary band of fearless art activists "The Gagarin Granddaughters" (London's somewhat more tasteful answer to Pussy Riot).

Manning the ship will be the sweet-voiced Elena Dana, who will delight your ears with an array of feisty gypsy romances and glorious jazz melodies. All interlaced with the intoxicating tunes of DJ Mourrka – London's only Russian gangster cat DJ! 

As usual, entry is FREE and no advance booking is required; but we recommend emailing ahead to be sure you get on the list for this one! Email

Dash Arts presents a new programme of Dash Cafés: an artistic exploration of the countries of the former Soviet Union with music, films, talks and discussions.

Dress code (encouraged): notable Soviet women.
