Olonkho show "Dzhyrybyna the Warrior Woman" immerses the audience into the world of toyuk, a traditional singing technique, shaman rituals, unique national dance and the story of the life of a strongwoman who fought evil spirits. The performance was created by director and actress Matryona Vladimirovna Kornilova (March 24, 1962 – February 21, 2019), who had made a considerable contribution into studying, preserving and developing the ancient art of olonkho.

 

"We live in the Middle world between the Upper and the Lower ones. In olonkho, same as in the epos of other nations, the main narrative is about the light and dark beginnings of life and the responsibility bestowed on a human, not only for one's actions, but also for the state of the world. When evil enters the world from below, we become unkind and we have to resist it. Only then we can shape the fortune of our Middle world blessed by the gods." Matryona Kornilova
