August 17, 2019 at the Tyulyachinsky district of Tatarstan the XII Theater Sabantuy will take place. This year, artists and employees from 11 state theaters of Tatarstan will gather for the holiday.
The history of the Theater Sabantuy in Tatarstan dates back to 2005. The initiator of such a holiday for the theatrical public of the republic was the Tatar State Drama and Comedy Theater named after Karim Tinchurin. Theatrical Sabantuy is held in order to popularize the national holiday of Sabantuy, to revive and preserve the holidays and rites of the Tatar people, to strengthen and creatively develop unions between the theaters of Tatarstan.
Despite the fact that Sabantuy is theatrical, he cannot do without traditional competitions: the Tatar national wrestling on Koresh belts, running in bags, breaking a pot with blindfolds, fighting with bags on a log, lifting weights.
It is planned that, in addition to the sheep, the absolute winner of the Koresh tournament, batyr, will traditionally receive the main prize from the President of the Republic of Tatarstan – a car, as well as a refrigerator. It is worth noting that only artists of state theaters can take part in this type of competition.
Beginning at 11:00
