End of the Road, 8', 2019, Israel
An abstracted narrative exploring friendship, illness, fear, and attachment, “End of the Road” uses fluid visual imagery to express personal growth, the death of relationships, and how we keep time: in sickness and health, in waiting and moving, speaking and remaining silent, in reading and being seen. The piece uses postcards, tarot cards, clocks, and other visual cues to help tell the story, as well as poetry and often unreadable text- the words themselves becoming abstracted and devalued, letters and fragments of imagined conversation drifting apart like dreams, reflecting the fissures in a failed relationship. The piece features two gender-fluid actors playing the characters “Noah” and “Max”, and a repeated, fragmented soundtrack of “I Get
Along Without You Very Well” by Chet Baker.
