End of Love is a vaudeville performed at the end of the world. The location is on the stage of a London theatre. There is no audience. There are twelve characters: a dark angel, a betrayed cyclops, a love torn dandy, a man who has everything, an ancient moon, a pair of petty criminals on the run, a trapeze artist, a homeless man, a lonely astronaut, an imprisoned woman and an aged Jack the Giant killer.

The characters’ monologues reveal glimpses of a lonely world of fear and desire, where they wait amidst crushed hopes and the impossibility of romantic truth. Referencing theatre, literature, expanded cinema and performance, as well as the artist's personal practice, End of Love is a poetic expression of love’s elusiveness, the non-linearity of time, and fleeting facets of memory.
