There is really special thing about Motanka name. It was a knitting doll that ancient Ukrainians used as the sacred overseer. You can see this doll on the picture underneath. This is a powerful and mystiс doll, it has a force to be located between life and death. It was without the face because it related to ancestors and souls which hadn't borned yet! The doll protected people from diseases from dark things. On the performances Motanka puts these dolls on the stands and instruments, this is an integral part of the show.
On the stage founders use small art sceneries which show ancient traditions of Ukraine. There are rituals, rites, throat singing, the prettiest girls which wear wreaths and ethno clothes and whisper and sing epic, authentic motives, also scream. In development it will be a big show with breaks that show ancient traditions with mystic sceneries.
