DASH CAFÉ: The Revolution that Shook the World

Wednesday 28 June
Main Space

In a nutshell

An evening of conversation, music and film that explores the dramatic events leading up to the October Revolution of 1917

Go on...

Our June Café, at the heart of our REVOLUTION17 year, will be a probing investigation into the gripping events of 1917 in Petrograd, the year of revolutions that changed the world: what exactly happened between the less known February revolution and the iconic October uprising. Located within the pop-up installation of The Dacha at Rich Mix, exciting conversation between special guests including Orlando Figes will be accompanied by film clips compiled by our friends Obskura, music and, as always, our brilliant audience!

What to Expect

Lively conversation and fascinating film clips.


This event is part of Revolution17 - an explosion of music, theatre, performance, film, art and events throughout 2017, offering a unique artistic experience of the Soviet and post-Soviet story in the centenary year of the Russian Revolution.


'Rich Mix is an important cultural centre for the development of arts and performance in London particularly those addressing the complexities of Eastern European culture and the post-Soviet space.'
