Baba Yaga's House performance by Elisa Saether for the Miniatyr Histoire show at Musee16.
Sound accompaniment by Chiptunes.
Where Baba Yaga Lives:
Baba Yaga lives in a magic house that has a life of its own, and it’s as much a character of Russian folklore as is Baba Yaga herself. The house looks, at first glance, like a normal house. Closer inspection reveals that the house stands on chicken legs that enable it to move about in accordance with Baba Yaga’s wishes.
The hut is either described as being windowless and doorless, or it turns its back to would-be visitors so that the door remains unseen to them. The hut may also spin around in a whirl, making entry impossible. The hut will only reveal its door after a magic spell or rhyme is said.
