TRANSFERED TO CANKARJEV DOM
Russian National Folk Dance Ensemble
Founded in 1948, the Beriozka Folk Dance Ensemble is famed for its special – and secret – dance step that continues to astonish audiences around the world. The dancers always begin their performances with a round dance in which they display this famous step, creating the illusion that the dancers are standing still while the stage revolves beneath them. According to the ensemble’s leader Mira Koltsova, the real reason why Beriozka’s audiences are always enchanted is not a physical one but is due to their expressivity, deriving from the depths of the soul.
April snowfall damaged the canvas roof of the Križanke summer theatre. Events will continue to be held there, but the seating in the venue will remain temporarily exposed to the elements.
