‘An elegant production that delivers on its promise to stay with you long after you leave' Guardian ★★★★
Part chamber concert, part performance, Endings is a meditation on cycles and the ending of things. Using a richly textured soundscape of turntables, reel-to-reel tape players, recorded interviews and live performers, Endings explores our experiences of death, dying and afterlife.
Voices of the living emerge ghost-like from records; performers converse with the taped voices of past conversations; and song floats across the familiar crackle of vinyl.
Featuring the songs of acclaimed singer/songwriter Paddy Mann (Grand Salvo) and sound design by Peter Knight, Endings was first performed at the Sydney Festival in 2015, where it won an award for Design and Realisation.
