The Theatre activities are developed in three main directions.
The first one is the medieval times open-air Theatre, which presents wandering jesters and jugglers, dancers and musicians, acrobats and storytellers. Travelling around the medieval markets worldwide we fascinate people who want to touch the mysterious period of the Middle Ages.
No doubt you’ve seen such medieval street actors, performing on the stone paving in beautiful old towns. May be, you saw us?
The second direction is magnificent fire dance performance. Incredible dances and juggling with open fire leave no one indifferent.
The theatre has been thriving in the sphere of fire show since it came into existence in Belarus. Through all these years we have proved ourselves as the best and the most reliable fire show team in the country. Let the fire disperse the darkness and warm up the hearts!
The last one is the Viking and Slavic Theatre. This is the re-enactment of the earliest entertainment culture: folk dances, games, songs, storytelling and, of course, the music of VIII-XII centuries. It’s hard to imagine Viking markets and festivals without these activities that make integral part of Viking and Slavic cultures.
Also our medieval theatre proposes native authentic and exclusive Belarusian traditional folk dances and games.
We’ve turned the fascination in the Middle Ages, fire show and Ancient Times into our lifestyle. We love what we do and make our best to impress and inspire the others.
Nowadays "DiGrease’s Buffoon Theatre" reconstructs the culture of wandering medieval theatre, theatre of jugglers and acrobats, music and farces, mimes and stilt-walkers, medieval jesters, dances and fire-works.

Folk show and traditional dance workshops
Ancient myths and legends, dances, songs and games bring us back to our history and native roots. They all can revive and beautify any holiday, wedding or other ceremony in folk style. Our host of the occasion will both describe the ritual peculiarities and make its detailed reconstruction. According to the traditions each celebration is to be finished with jolly folk dances, live music, songs and active Slavic games.
The information about vikings is usually brief and stereotyped: invasions, wars and fights. The side of entertainment is usually ignored. But Early Medieval folks also loved to dance, to play games, to listen to music.
For sure, viking times were also filled with entertainments. Nowadays we try to collect and reconstruct all the details of ancient folk culture - dances, music, songs and games. And each viking festival should be filled with them.
Led light show
Led light performance is a good replacement for fire-show for an in-door holiday. Dancers and jugglers in fluorescence costumes and make-up show a bright and dynamic performance. The use of various luminous instruments and ultraviolet light make it unforgettable. It is suitable for a disco club, a café, a restaurant or a house.
