Media about the performance
Only in the very beginning it seems that the video projection is meant for an intermission between the intense episodes of the “real performance.” In practice, the combined video clips of the rehearsals are so eventful and ingenious that you do not want to miss a single throw line. This is a good tactic to partially shade the changes of scenes, while assemblers’ hassle and their shadows perfectly conform to the “playing theatre” clips. This is that unique case when stage workers are an organic part of the performance itself.

In the very beginning of the performance “The End. Performance”, they announced that the performance will go for an hour and a half without intermission. Closer to the announced time of ending, some spectators, me included, started glancing at their watches. But not for the usual reason; this time nobody wanted this come to an end. The soul is overfilled with joy that, it seems, somebody has heard your secret wishes: the performance goes for nearly two hours
