The End - part 2

What do togetherness, solidarity, and connection mean at this moment? What brings us closer to each other? How can mutual transparency strengthen interaction?

With a mix of movement, music, light, and video, The End - part 2 explores a world of shifting relationships: between the three performers, between the performers and video, between live and prerecorded. The performance blurs the distinction between seeing and being seen and feels like a collection of short stories where energy, stillness, sensitivity, distortion, and longing confront and meet each other. The performers show different sides of themselves and, eventually, dissolve physical boundaries—even in opposition, our individual spaces can be shared.

For The End - part 2, Arno Schuitemaker continues the collaboration with performers Ivan Ugrin, Mark Christoph Klee, and Angelo Petracca. The music is composed by Aart Strootman, and the light design is created by Jean Kalman, two artists whom Arno also worked with in multiple other productions. He has invited video artist Gilbert Nouno to join the team for this work.
