Olga Alexandrova and the “Ob-Ugrian peoples’ theatre” creation

In view of revival of self-consciousness and world great interest to ethnic cultures of small-in-number peoples in the Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug Ugra arose the necessity of creation the national theatre of the Khanty and Mansi peoples. In a big family of Finno-Ugrian nations the Khanty and Mansi peoples were practically the only who lacked of professional theatre art.

The II International Festival of Trades of the Finno-Ugrian peoples «Ugra — 2002» presented in its program the actress, producer and the scientific explorer of Finno-Ugrian culture Olga Alexandrova. After performing of her play, based on the Udmurt folklore «Three wedding tunes» she was introduced by the vice-chairman of the government on issues of small-in-number peoples of the North of the Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug Ugra A. Raishev to the governor of the Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug Ugra A. Filipenko as the only possible candidate for the post of the founder and the creative manager of the Khanty and Mansi peoples theatre.

On the 25 of October, year 2002 the Governor of the Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug Ugra Alexander Filipenko ordered to create the institution of the Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug Ugra, which is called the «Ob-Ugrian peoples’ theatre» with a view to keep and develop folklore and spiritual culture of the aboriginal nations living in the Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug, to provide the conditions for the professional national theatrical art development.

When the institution of the Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug Ugra the «Ob-Ugrian peoples’ theatre» was created it was under the jurisdiction of the Department on Issues of Small- in-Number Peoples of the North of the Autonomous Okrug. It confirms the structure, the list of members of staff, the estimate of incomes and expenses of the institution.

The Department of State Ownership of the Autonomous Okrug confirms the regulations of the institution.

On the 21 of April, year 2003 the Governor of the Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug Ugra Alexander Filipenko ordered to deliver the institution of the Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug the «Ob-Ugrian peoples’ theatre» from subordination of the Department on Issues of Small- in-Number Peoples of the North to the jurisdiction of the Department of Culture and Art of the Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug (A. Konev) from the 15-th of May, year 2003.
