On the imminence of his death, a shipwrecked sailor is faced with the dilemma of letting himself be devoured by vultures or of throwing himself into the sea. Confronting the fatality reserved to him by destiny, he chooses the path of the unknown, diving into the waters of the ocean. In a close island a huge snake lays a strange egg that arouses the curiosity and the ambition of the inhabitants the place. Curiosity, covetousness, anger, interdictions, power struggles, revolt, annihilation. These are some of the themes that will be presented in a symbolic way by the play Oroboro, a parable about the cyclical character of existence - life / death / life.
