Will it take long? Are we almost there? How long until it finishes? In this CÁPSULA we explore the multiple aspects of ending. The unexpected end. The end one longs for. The end that is soon to come. The end that isn’t final. The end that never comes. Three bodies, three breathless presences, are waiting. Or perhaps they are handling waiting and thus boosting action. As if time was a game that we all know how to play after all.
We elect the idea of end as a starting point. What do we do once we realize the end is near? Knowing everything has an end and being conscious of its finite nature makes it all the more intense (…). The end is unavoidable which boosts the acceptance or refusal of past and the creation of new future possibilities. A cyclic process in history, inherent to human condition.
