In „Vērpete” the Latvian Krišjānis Sants and Swedish Erik Eriksson bring together their keen interest of the moving body, ways of altering sensorial perception and their extensive research of the Baltic traditional music, dance and handicraft. Utilizing the melodic structures of Latvian folk songs and a circular pattern common to many cultures, the two dancers become the evolution of one constantly changing vortex of movement. Turning hand in hand, it is the agreement and commitment to disagree that keeps the dancers moving together.

“Vērpete” was premiered at  the International Festival of Contemporary Theatre Homo Novus and in 2015/2016 won the Latvian theatre award in contemporary dance.
