Storm End Come

In Storm End Come the performers embark on a journey of fluid and unpredictable mental states, which lead them to meetings and interactions in shifting environments. Within this unstable atmosphere, the work unravels a world which looks at one’s assumption of “self” as it is challenged by the basic fear of non-existence and of disappearing into someone else, alongside the attraction and alarm of transformation. Within this conundrum, there is still the need to reach small climaxes, expose moments of personal expression, and be a witness to someone else’s intimacy. Embodying all of this, the work looks at the struggle to rebirth one’s identity through a series of personal, collective and animalistic sequences; A kind of heroic, pathetic and vulnerable insistence to define oneself, hindered by the need to submit to elements which are beyond our powers.
