Ouroboros is the mythological snake eating its own tail, often interpreted as a symbol of  eternal cyclical renewal.

Estonian-Norwegian choreographer duo Roosna & Flak embarks on a poetic journey with Indian dance artist Rakesh Sukesh to explore the terrain of togetherness: separately entangled, decisively confused and efficiently failing. They place their trust in a misunderstanding of life and each other in order to restore the balance and imbalance that keep them moving, allowing the cracks in their knowledge to show the way.

In the performance the dancers create personal and collective sanctuaries that help them shed the skins of worn out selves.

And finally listen to the rain.

With “Shelter Ouroboros” Roosna and Flak continue their practice of creating interactive performance-ecosystems, where the dancers’ movements affect the sound and visual landscapes of the performance.
