Beauty Asian Traditional Mongolian Contortion - Take a look at the bend of a beautiful body
Mongolian contortionists are world-renowned as the best in their field. They are recruited by the most prestigious exhibitions and circuses, presented with the most distinguished awards, and considered to be the most esteemed models of the profession. Believed to be a powerful vehicle of social mobility, this art form attracts people from all over Mongolia. Mongolian children dream to become contortionists and parents often wholeheartedly support that decision. Private contortionist schools can charge high enrolment rates, facilitating ample financial gains for school managers, which sometimes leads to their corrupt behavior. Since the end of communism in Mongolia, the contortionist stage act has been modernized to adapt to contemporary tastes and trends. This phenomenon is becoming a larger cause for concern for the keepers, historians, and practitioners of traditional Mongolian contortion, which is protected as a national intangible heritage.
