Malinki’ folk theatre
The ‘Malinki’ folk theatre from Malinniki was set up in 1998 (Polish: ‘Raspberries’ – a play on words related to the name of the village they come from). Nowadays, its activities are conducted in the Commune Culture Centre in Orla. ‘Malinki’ keep the local tradition and the language alive by performing songs characteristic of the village of Malinniki without accompaniment as well as presenting old customs. Apart from the harvest rite, the group also stages the wedding and the christening party. ‘Malinki’ were awarded at such events as the National Convention of Polish Village Theatres, a review of rite theatres and festivals of Belarusian culture.
