Is this the End ?

Story

  • Two young people, man, and woman in love face a world in crisis and in deep transition. They carry on their shoulders and in their bodies, the memory of a world which seems to be extinct and especially the memory of a suffering Nature. In this stifling, dying world, where everything seems small, cramped, confined, they are, like the planet, in the urgency of a new deep breath. Is this the end or a new beginning? Will they finally find their right places in this Nature, as a part of it?

Staging Notes

Two young people, a man and a woman in love, face a world in crisis and in deep transition. They carry on their shoulders and in their bodies, the memory of a world which seems to be extinct and especially the memory of a suffering Nature. In this stifling, dying world, where everything seems small, cramped, confined, they are, like the planet, in the urgency of a new deep breath.


“Is this the end of all that they did or
dreamed?”
Is this the end or a new beginning?
Will they finally find their right places
in Nature, as a part of it?
Will they hear their inner call for
change?
Beyond any restriction, will they finally
find their rightful place within Nature
whose call they feel?
Finally free, vast and loving?
