Artist Alexandra presents her new installation A walk to Baba Yaga’s Place - a work of both story telling and sound.

Using experimental story telling Alexandra draws from her strong heritage of Russian, Jewish, and Romani as well as the stories her mother would tell her as a child.

The stories told of an old witch that lived in the Russian forest in a hut that stood on chicken legs and would eat |children who disobeyed their parents. Others included tales of giant clay-like creatures that |protected the innocent or of the superstitions that surround Romani, such as were-wolfism and casting curses on people who had wronged them.

Using these old folktales as inspiration, Alexandra creates an atmosphere with her music to plummet the listener into their own imagination.

A Walk to Baba Yaga’s Place is an installation complete with food, live music, and an |immersive set for the audience to experience. A man-made |forest will be built in the time space of one week inside the Fish Factory Art Space studio, where the public is invited to come learn and help build the installation until Friday.

From Saturday until November 21, the installation will be open to the public for an entry fee of £10. This includes a live performance, immersive set, and a dining with our very own Babushka Baba Yaga.

Alexandra’s goal is to |submerge the listener into their own imagination, creating an atmosphere using the five |senses: touch, taste, sight, smell, and hearing.

With these elements, she wishes to take the audience on a journey to old Russia where they meet with the old witch Baba Yaga.Whether or not Baba Yaga will be kind or evil is all up to the imagination.
