The End explores the nuances of human failure at the end of the world. From the initial on-stage entrance, this race against the clock, situates the one performer as both humanity and the Earth. As humanity inches closer and closer to the end of the show, the performer begins with simple warmups which then develop into a series of performed tasks that increase in risk to themselves and demands the audience to question: When do I intervene? Ultimately, calling into question: When does something need to end?
“In the midst of failure, we get to know ourselves.” says the performer.
