The FATD with Meyrick Kaminski

The Folkloric and Artistic Troupe of Dhalaristan 2010

In 2010 the FATD  toured the Balkans, leaving from Berlin on May 1st headed towards Istanbul on a 2 month journey to find other Dhalaris, and to reconnect the history of their culture.

The Folkloric and Artistic Troupe of Dhalaristan

FATD is a folkloric troupe, dedicated to the reinvestigation of the rituals and traditions of the Dhalarii people.  Based in Berlin, the Troupe has gathered a diverse group of participants to assist in the creation of folklore/traditions/customs that are the basis of our culture.  This includes ritual, song, dance, artefacts, cuisine, costume, social traditions, and myth – anything that can define culture. The interview process, and collaboration with the Troupe, is the only precondition for membership. Anyone can become Dhalarii. Dhalaristan is a state that we create through collaboration
