Director Yevgeny Korniag is a master of high-quality visual and semantic experiment. His performance "Wedding with the Wind" tells the story of a man who is in captivity of other people's decisions, a son absorbed and paralysed by mother's love. There are no words in the usual sense, and the main means of expression is the Belarusian folk song.

"This performance should be watched by everyone who who is longing for something beautiful, smart, real ... The whole action and every scene appear to be a kind of artistic theatre-performance event, verified with such mathematical precision that does not allow a single false note." Tatiana Shelamova, Evening Brest
