Since 2005 I have been a Trustee of Peacebuilding UK (full name Centre for Peacebuilding and Community Development) which supports and builds local capacities for peace in the North Caucasus. I have recently been appointed as the Chair. So, it’s a huge honour to spread the news about one of PBUK’s most exciting and ambitious projects.
Daimohk is a Chechen Children’s Dance Ensemble, formed by celebrated Chechen Dancer Ramzan Akhmadov and his wife, Aiza in 1998, to give children surrounded by violence and aggression a positive creative focus and room for emotional self-expression. Their achievements over the past decade are truly phenomenal. Coupled with the breathtaking talent and energy of the dances, each performance is a truly uplifting, emotional experience.
They will be visiting the UK this month for several performances. Information on dates, venues and booking is all on the PBUK website. To whet your appetite I have added some links to past performances and reviews.
We are just awaiting confirmation of their visas, but all being well the group should arrive early next week, ready to wow new crowds at the Llangollen International Eisteddfod and at several venues in London.
You can help to promote this event to others and get involved by RSVPing to our Facebook event page, adding your own photos to our Daimohk Flickr Group and if you use Twitter you can also follow us and spread the word, we’re at http://twitter.com/PeacebuildingUK
Get your tickets now to avoid disappointment, this is their first visit in three years and we anticipate sell-out shows!
