Choreographers and dancers Külli Roosna (Estonia) and Kenneth Flak (Norway) have been collaborating since 2008. Their work deals with the narratives and technologies of the body. 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. In addition to their own choreographic works in the freelance field created at Korzo and STÜ, they have been commissioned to create works for the Estonian National Ballet, Festival Classique (the Netherlands), Kaunas Biennial (Lithuania) and others.

In 2010 her solo performance Circle Through was awarded the First Prize at the International Festival of Modern Choreography in Vitebsk, Belarus. She is also a guest teacher at different universities in Estonia, Norway and the Netherlands.
