Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/ The ‘Inverted triangle’ ethno ballet has been invited to perform at the UNESCO Headquarters in Paris on October 9, 2019.

Written in 2016, ‘Inverted triangle’ is an ethno ballet based on the studies of students and professors. Professor S.Dulam, leader of the professors team of folk art and dance studies, wrote the libretto for the ballet. The ballet music was written by singer and composer of 'Khusugtun' D.Ariunbold. Director and choreographer D.Enkhgerel, scenic designer B.Nyamkhuu and multimedia artist B.Nandin-Erdene collaborated on the creation of the ballet as well.

Over 50 artists will perform the ‘Inverted triangle’ which depicts the ancient rituals of shamans. It is remarkable that the music is played on ancient musical instruments. This ballet is an innovative work that transforms the archaeological and ethnographic findings into modern art content, noted professor S.Dulam.

The story takes place in ancient Mongolia around 5th millenium BC, when the black shamans began to abuse their power, oppressing innocent folks. According to the beliefs of that time, the high spirit or spirit of consciousness of shamans, which is located in the crown chakra, will not be able to reincarnate if buried with heads down.
