Premiere 20 October, 2000
'The Ends of Things' is based around a central character whose life, as he understands it, is drawing to a close. His world is reduced to a small room from which he continues his mundane daily activities with painstaking, fastidious monotony, remembering in fragments, the life that is behind him. These scenes of regret and missed opportunities are represented by three dancers who eventually encroach upon his world, collapsing the boundaries between reason and chaos, and consigning him to the borderless expanse of the stage and beyond.
The Ends of Things (for Jad McAdam) premiered as part of the Melbourne International Festival at the National Theatre, Melbourne Australia
