Hidden from the performer, yet in plain view of the audience, an alarm is set to go off and Laura begins. Her task?…to create an ending…her text?…the last lines of 100 Hollywood films. Mixing live performance and video projection, Finale… magnifies our struggle to find closure while poking fun at our attempts at constructing a perfect ending – in both performance and everyday life.
