The Wolf Project to be presented in Kyiv

Zalyonka-Fest is excited to present The Wolf Project.

On 30th of November, 2015, dancers and choreographers Külli Roosna (Estonia) and Kenneth Flak (Norway) will present their most famous performance The Wolf Project at Molodoy theatre in Kiev.

The performance is based on Külli family history. On 25th of March, 1949, Külli Roosna’s grandmother was deported to Siberia together with tens of thousands of other Estonians. Many didn’t survive the journey. Her memories of this are not a written fiction novel, but are personal and very real experiences of living under an oppressive regime.

“The Wolf Project” explores the themes of power and manipulation, the relationship between man and government. Whom do we trust? Who shapes our opinions and views? Or do we simply follow power and the authority?

Gifted choreographers and dancers, participants of many European festivals, Külli Roosna (Estonia) and Kenneth Flak (Norway) have been collaborating since 2008. They have explored a wide range of themes, including ancient Viking mythology, contemporary internet culture and totalitarian regimes.

The core of their work is the dancing body’s possibilities and limitations, in a constant dialogue with the digital technologies and discourses that extend and counterpoint it.

On 29th of November, 2015, Külli Roosna and Kenneth Flak will give a workshop for dancers and choreographers of contemporary dance.

More details to be announced later. Follow us to stay in touch!
