premiere June 2013 - Sala Olido, São Paulo - Brazil
A Greek origin word, symbolized by a serpent biting its own tail, Oroboro reveals an image without beginning or end. It is a palindrome, that is, a word that can be read backwards without losing its pronunciation and conveys the idea of something cyclical, which always refers to the beginning.
The work deals with childhood and old age, two places distant and at the same time, close. "Children and the elderly have similar characteristics and in our 'adult' society they are treated as marginal bands.
The return to childhood, the relationships between the lived memories, affective or not, run the theme of the work. On such a premise, Oroboro touches on issues of existence, such as presence and absence, which often escape our control.
