Love's End is a play about broken relationship. Set in a rehearsal room, the middle-aged ordinary couple come straight to the point when one of the two declares the begging of the end. The couple revisits the end of their relationship through one-hour separate monologues, which seem to be questions and answers. When words alone will not suffice, they use physical movement in response to each other.
The end of relationship is like life's end, which means finishing or vanishing; meanwhile, the start of relationship signifies rebirth. The play is made for souls to baptize themselves, and for individuals to defend and attack with fresh and blood, muscles and bones. The French dialogue of the play, with daily questions and answers incomparably ordinary, has made it possible to peel off layers of complicated human nature. The two performers' voices constantly hit our ears with rhythm. They stand on the two ends of the stage, throwing themselves into words which encompass the whole theater, establishing wire fence between, and in the end, embedding the twined wire into each other's heart.
They are artists because I like to talk about my vision of drama, my passion for the drama art. I feel that all my creations belong to the same work in process. In Gennevilliers, as director of the National Theater Center, I invite artists rather than stage directors. They are people who build up their shows from beginning to end; they are living people who invent new things.
Shakespeare says, one must put love in hate and hate in love… somehow it reminds me of Cassavetes.
