End Game, 2017
End Game is a response to the rise of the extreme right across the globe in recent years. Anchored in a xenophobic nationalism, it’s also a reaction to neo-liberal humiliation.
A political debate, staged as a theatrical production, presents a right-wing candidate mock-shooting a refugee, a neo-liberal appealing to corporate power, and a social democrat reaching to help the refugee. The corporate figure ignores the neo-liberal politician, concentrating on his end-game: the positioning of an extreme right demagogue to avoid the possible demise of capitalism.
The audience is made up of the various political constituencies: supporters of the extreme right, neo-liberal professionals, and left-wing social movement activists who are about to walk out of the scene onto the streets.
