"Blending theatre, song and sound art, Endings is a sharply conceived, starkly staged and strikingly controlled performance softened by love...Endings is a receptacle for the tremendous power of loving relationships lived right to the end." | The Stage 

A brief look at "Endings"

Poised in the delicate space between concert and theatre, Endings is a meditation on cycles and the ending of things. Using portable turntables, reel-to-reel tape players and live performance, Endings finds
form for experiences both ordinary and extraordinary that cluster around death, dying and afterlife.

Endings is built in part from one-on-one interviews – people’s stories, reflections and voices. These recordings are cut onto vinyl records and embedded within a richly textured electro-acoustic sound design that is operated, accompanied, and extended through live performance and song. The performance also features the songs and vocals of acclaimed singer/ songwriter Paddy Mann (Grand Salvo).

Voices of the living emerge ghost-like from records, performers converse live with the taped voices of past conversations, tape loops carve round and round through the space, and song floats across the familiar crackle of records ending.
Strobe lighting and haze effects are used during the show.
Commissioned by Performance Space and the City of Melbourne’s Arts House.
Assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.
Supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria.
