About This Show
‘I am the end’ is a text which explores the failure of representative theater. The text’s objective is to integrate the idea of stage as a mirror and audience as a spectator; to challenge the idea of passively viewing archetypes being presented in familiar images. It moves from an objective view of the ‘the end’ to a more subjective one. From what the end of the World is to the end of what the Self is, this show acknowledges that both the World and the Self are theatrical phenomena.
