Exploring the nuances of human failure, this performance places a single individual at the centre of humanities woes as it abstracts and contemplates what it means to “end” something. Personifying “Earth” as a primate-creature and completing a series of tasks that increase in risk — never really knowing if they will be completed or not.
“In the midst of failure, we get to know ourselves.”
This multidisciplinary performance features movement, song, and performance art as it attempts to weave a thread of humanity (at its potential worst).
