Plot synopsis
The individual seems to go under desperately in a lost battle with almighty nature. Only assimilation still seems to offer salvation.
 

Commentaries and bibliography
 
When an organism is no longer able to resist the aggressive influences of its surroundings, it finally turns to assimilation and disappears into the background. So too in this choreographic essay by the Russian duo Myznikova and Provorov, in which humanity is surrendered to the whims of nature. Despair is an exciting and yet dark visual spectacle in a desolate landscape in which ravens seem to rule.
