Contortionist O.Tsetseglen to organize solo performance


Contortionist of the Mongolian State Academic Theater of Opera and Ballet, and head of Mongoljingoo Contortion’s Convention O.Tsetseglen will present a solo performance titled “Gathering of Snakes” on July 4.

Below is a brief interview with O.Tsetseglen.

Contortionists are as flexible as snakes. Is that why you named the performance “Gathering of Snakes”?

Yes. Mongolians believe that if we see a gathering of snakes, we will become wealthy and lucky. The snake is a symbol of contortionists and Mongolians. That’s why I named the performance “Gathering of Snakes”.

What’s special about your performance?

Female contortionists have never organized a solo performance in Mongolia before. It is the first time that I am organizing one. My performance has two parts. In the first part, I will perform contortion with khuumii (throat singing), morin khuur, and Mongolian traditional dance. In the second part, I will do contortion to jazz music. We can do contortion to any type of music, not just traditional songs.

Who is directing your show?

Choreographer of the Mongolian State Academic Theater of Opera and Ballet A.Davaakhuu is directing the show. Artists of Mongoljingoo Contortion’s Convention and the Mongolian State Academic Theater of Opera and Ballet will participate in the concert.

What will you do after the performance?

I will perform again in the fall, if audiences like the show.

Can you tell our readers about Mongoljingoo Contortion’s Convention ?

Every country has contortionists. Mongolian contortionists are very popular around the world, but the Government of Mongolia never supports us.
