Dakini Project is an all female cross art form performance project celebrating the strength of women through circus, puppetry, song, music, and dance. Our aim is to inspire and reach out to women of all ages who might be victims or survivors of domestic or sexual abuse, by doing a site specific circus/puppetry/physical theatre take-over at various venues and events with a large group of professional performers.
As part of the project we are running community workshops to women groups with a non-performance background, and invite attendees of the workshops to participate in the show. Empowering women through the therapeutic effects of circus and movement, building confidence and self esteem through inclusion.
Our first show was on 3rd June 2018 as part of Hidden Door festival in Edinburgh, part of their Pop Up Take Over program.
Concept and direction: Jusztina Hermann
Performers: Miriam Wolanski, Annie Minnaar, Sarah Phizacklea, Saya Yamaguchi, Antonia Maeker, Amy Longmuir, Kirstie Duncan, Rachael Mcintyre, Sade Nadour and Mango Sheridan.
