Russian Response to Halloween!


On the 31st of October in many countries of the world people celebrate Halloween. Russia is already getting used to this tradition as well, but surely Russian folklore has enough of its own remarkable and vibrant characters representing the so-called evil creatures. That is why the slogan of the October 31st celebrations at South Ural State University will sound like “Russian Response to Halloween”.

At this event students will be able to plunge into the world of the Russian folk arts and learn many new things about the Russian customs and traditions. Foreign students will probably encounter the characters of the Russian fairytales for the first time; while, in their turn, senior high-school pupils invited to this celebration will be able to deepen their knowledge of our folklore.

An event-packed program awaits all the guests of the celebration:

  • Opening gala show with the Russian folklore characters;
  • Interactive lecture “The World of the Russian Folk Art”;
  • Watching of the Russian folklore fairytales with further discussion among foreign students and high-school pupils;
  • Quiz on the Russian folklore characters; and
  • Master class “Hear the Call of Your Ancestors: Slavic Hand-made Talisman Dolls”.

At the celebration all those willing will be able to take bright pictures of themselves in front of a topical banner with the Russian folklore characters (Koschei the Immortal, Zmey Gorynych dragon, the witch Baba Yaga).

Come dressed as your favourite character and immerse yourself into the atmosphere of the Russian folklore fairytales! An event-packed program and unforgettable experience are waiting for you!
