June 22, the first day of the festival

The first day of a festival has it's own tension: will you meet the friends you didn't see for some time, will everybody arrive in time, will everything be prepared?

Yes: the friends arrived....

announcements, thanks to the sponsors, congratulations and hope:

Let the festival be a success! Let us follow the tradition of KUKART: new ideas, new friends, friendship and intensive cooperation!

The first performance was a production of INTERSTUDIO: HUMANIMALS, a performance for children and adults.

Vadim Isakov, the director, adopted an ancient tale of the Northern People and created a beautiful, breathtaking play. Great actors, puppets, pictures... truly enjoyable.

Ghosts And here they go: Ghosts run around, draw people into their hellish circle and try to bewitch them. North Russian Choir
But they must surrender to beauty: when the northrussion choir of beautiful young women started their summer celebration, the ghosts just could hide behind the trees and admire them.

After that, Tanya Segal presented her monoperformance DYBUK.
