In the VIII-XII centuries the countries we know today didn’t exist. On the territory of contemporary northern and East European countries lived Slavic, Baltic, German and Scandic tribes. The level of interaction between them in trade and culture was very high. The geographical position favored the establishment of close relations. Through trade journeys the tribes exchanged experience, traditions and, of course, entertainers.

Viking Age Theatre of Skomorokh

 Skhomorokhs are the wandering actors and bards of the Viking Age who were wide-spread in the whole Baltic region.  Our Theatre is the first one to reconstruct the movement of Skomorokhs: we not only "stylize" the costume, but also present the repertoire of performances, archaic musical instruments and tunes, storytelling, music, theatre, jester acts of skhomorokhs, etc.

Being the only one Skomorokh Theatre in Belarus (the land of Skomorokh) we’ll be very glad to acquaint you with the amazing atmosphere on the Viking Festival.

 

 Viking Age dances and games

Belarus is a part of the Baltic region. Our native land has long-lived traditions that were influenced by the traditional culture of adjoining lands. Our wide-spread interests helped to learn folk dances and games if Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Poland, Sweden and other regions. It really helps us to understand the process of migration and evolution of dances. As a result we can clearly understand our own roots, the roots of our souls. Long researches enabled us to store the knowledge about traditional folk dances so that we can present them to public and teach all the interested people.

We often organize and lead different Open Traditional Culture Workshops, where the guests are shown and taught folk games, dances and rituals of the early epoch. We use only authentic Viking-age instruments (bagpipes, flutes, tambourines, jew's-harps) and costumes.  Every festival visitor can learn a couple of dances and take them away as a sweet memory.

We have created a special program "Viking Age Dances and Games" that gives a notion of old long-lived traditions. This Viking program was presented in Poland: Wolin Viking Fest'05, '08, '09, '10, '11, '12; Biscupin Viking Museum'05, 08, 09; in Netherlands: Eindhoven Vikingmarket'06, 07, 08; In Finland: Aland'09, 12; In Norway: Stavanger'10, 11 and Landa'10, '11, '12; in Belarus: Braslaw Living Archeology Holiday'06, 07, 09; at Baltic Dance Nights (Latvia'06, 07, 08) and others.
