Two lovers confront one another. Two visions, two bodies, two monologues on how their love has come to an end. Armed with words like glistening knives and bearing each other’s heavy silences, the lovers negotiate their separation in a mental and emotional dance. In this moving, visceral play, we see a couple’s final confrontation, and we are invited to observe what happens in Clôture de l’amour, the end of love.
