The staging brings together bright pagan rituals venerating the sun, the earth, the harvest and a variety of arcane rites and fortunetelling, the old times teemed with.
       The most eminent participant of the festival will be the Eskimos ensemble Ergyron (May 19, the Moscow State History and Ethnography Theatre, 12 a.m. and the House of Music, May 20, 7 p.m.). The festival performance will be focusing on hunting rituals, not without elements of shamanism, bringing its special energy in.
