Baba Yaga is a morally ambiguous witch who relishes doling out romantic advice to those brave enough to visit her hut–or perhaps she would rather eat you instead. Often described as a hideous crone who lives deep in the forest, Baba Yaga is an unpredictable force from Russian folklore, who  occasionally helps and often hinders her fairy tale visitors. Sometimes kind and often cruel, she imparts the audience with romantic advice, told through three classic Russian fairy tales from her perspective.

Baba Yaga is written, devised, and performed by Sam Reiter. True to its Russian fairy tale roots, the show developed primarily in Moscow, where its creator studied for a semester at the Moscow Art Theatre (in conjunction with the National Theatre Institute). Baba Yaga weaves shadow puppets, expressive movement, Pushkin, unconventional anecdotes, Russian dance, and improvisation into a unique storytelling experience. Don’t miss the performance that Oregon Arts Watch hailed as a “majestic, loving invocation of an old spirit.”
