The creative festival “Breath of the Arctic” has been held in the settlement Mys Kamenniy for the second time. The festival was organized with support of the social investment program “Native Towns” of “Gazprom Neft” and the administration of Yamalskiy district.
The settlement Mys Kamenniy traditionally became the venue for the event, but performing artists from Novy Port and Yar-Sale also performed on the festive stage. This time “Breath of the Arctic” united the record number of participants: the organizing committee received 150 applications, and the jury reviewed 67 creative performances and 50 exhibition works. The number of nominations was also increased, as the press center of “Gazpromneft-Yamal” reports. In addition to vocal and dance directions, the participants were able to show their talents in theatrical performances and public speaking, instrumental genre, photography, fine and applied-decorative arts.
During four days the festival grounds were full of life. The first days were dedicated to master classes of guest teachers. As a result, theater lovers were united in the troupe “Children of the Arctic”, and under supervision of the director Kristina Demchenko they staged the play “Suitcase”, which impressed much the audience and the jury. Novices of the hip-hop direction together with the head Vitaliy Durov “lit up” the stage, and pupils of Sergey Chernya made a real beatbox battle.
The participants of all directions aged from 4 to 60 years old competed in the qualifying round for prizes of the festival “Breath of the Arctic”. It was not easy to define the best; the jury members were impressed with the high level of training and professionalism of the artists.

The youngest participant of the festival Stepan Zagoruiko won the hearts of the audience with the performance “A strange story”. Among the dance groups everyone loved the ensemble “Zadorinka” from the settlement Novy Port and the collective “Slavyanochka”.
