The Big Finish
This work for 3 performers uses camp, humor, and the American Musical Theater Songbook to examine the paradox of depression and isolation amidst boisterous self-expression. Sanity requires a certain level of impersonation. What we project out into the world as our most authentic self is often nothing more than a glossy varnish, but what would happen if we truly “let our freak flag fly?” Through text and movement, framed by thoughts on vanity, insecurity and suicide, The Big Finish subverts the very thin veneer of public decency and envisions a collective unraveling of sanity.
