Baba-Yaga is a well-known figure from Slavic folklore. Mad, bad and dangerous, haglike and ugly, she lives in the forest, isolated and abandoned, grumbling, grouchy, wild and untamable, a figure used to frighten children into obedience.

Klusha is fascinated by Baba-Yaga. She sympathizes with the lonely figure and her search for the humanity behind the terrifying images leads Klusha to decide to create a fantastical tragical clown show about Baba-Yaga. Through her journey to create such a show, Klusha discovers that Baba-Yaga lives deep within Klusha herself, and so her fantastical tragical show becomes a completely different story than the one she intended to present.

As in all fairy tales, Baba-Yaga here is not the focus, but a key to the plot. As a nature spirit, with her wisdom, wit, and ability to provoke wonders, this inner Baba Yaga guides Klusha during her journey through her fractured world, disordered and illuminated by memory and imagination. Discoveries are made. Things are lost. Through a powerful weave of laughter, tears and magic, Klusha reaches a moment of transcendence and transformation.

Baba Yaga premiered at the clownin International Women's Clown Festival in Vienna in November, 2010. Audience reaction was overwhelming: people were crying and laughing at the same time. Baba-Yaga differs from what people expect of a clown show: there are no circus tricks, no slapstick, no traditional gags, and no mime. Instead, Baba-Yaga seeks to be an authentic, provocative display of innocence and experience. The play celebrates the sheer beauty of being human, being pure and honest. Baba-Yaga is deeply affecting, poetical and philosophical. This form of clowning tries to find a deep connection with the audience, as well as creating a shared experience.

Albina Matuzko describes the piece:
“I continue to discover new things about Baba-Yaga every time I perform the show. There are so many different points of view, layers beyond the surface, messages in between the words. There are so many rich symbols in this story. That is why, after each performance, I love when audience members tell me what they think the piece is about. Their responses surprise me every time.

It is very risky to make a clown theatre piece like this one. When I go on stage I depend on the willingness of the audience to enter into a relationship with me and – most importantly – with themselves. What is most important is that the audience is affected by the performance, whether or not they agree with or sympathize with the story. It is great if people watching the show personalize the story and both their and my experience of it evolve synchronously, resulting in a shared experience. This is how the story told by the clown becomes universal.”

Albina Matuzko, a citizen of the Netherlands originally from Ukraine, now lives on the Carribean island of Sint Maarten. She studied theatre at The Kiev State Institute of Fine Arts, Ukraine. As a clown she has participated in international clown Festivals: Klovnbuf in Ljubljana, Slovenia (2011), Clownin, Vienna, Austria (2008, 2010), Meppel, Netherlands (2010), De Pallaces, Andorra (2009), Esse Monde de Mulher Palhaça, Rio de Janeiro, Brasil (2007) and in Svenborg, Denmark (2009).

Sue Morrison, director and co-writer, has been teaching, directing and collaborating on Clown and Bouffon across the globe for more than 25 years. Her students are currently featured in Cirque de Soleil, Slava’s Snow Show, Blue Man Group, the Second City and on other international stages. Today, Morrison’s unique and powerful work brings together the diverse elements of Native American clowning, Clown through mask, Bouffon, Le Jeu and improvisation, ultimately creating dynamic performance spectacles. Her clown shows have risen to the top of the festival scene and have been presented in theatres around the world. Sue’s shows have been described as “existential vaudeville”, “riveting theatre”, and “pure genius." She has co-created and directed more than 30 shows.
