Endings is an ongoing performance - and collaborative project where the three artists meet and work together in different cities. These meetings ends in each place in a performance that explores the theme of "endings" and the city / locality where the performance takes place. Earlier versions have been Endings for Bergen in an artist studio, Endings for Lisbon in a closed down bookstore, Endings for Aberystwyth at the Center for Performance Research in Wales, Endings for Berlin in a newly opened bakery and Let's do Endings again at Lydgalleriet in Bergen.
With Endings the artists tries out different approaches on how to invite the audience into the room and interact with them. Thematically, they work with the fluent transition between different forms of endings and different ways of thinking what on what it can mean to finish something.
The performance is part of Black Box Theatre and UKS festival Performance Program 07 and is funded by Arts Council Norway.
