How
do
we
make
ends
meet? An
ending
gives
way
to
the
other
end
-
beginning.
Between
ends
we
must
determine
how
to
endure. We
know
a
great
deal
about
the
stages
of
endurance.
And
we
know
the
many
myths
and
legends
of
beginning.
But
we
don't
know
much
about
where
ends
meet
-
the
circumstances
of
starting,
what
ends
to
allow
a
beginning. I
am
struck
that
if
there
is
a
difference
between
how
the
Wooster
Group
and
the
Nature
Theater
of
Oklahoma
have
endured,
it
is
a
difference
in
identifying
the
temporal
point
of
origin:
The
Wooster
Group
began
with
a
building,
in
fact
was
given
one
when
The
Performance
Group
ended
and
The
Wooster
Group
began.
The
circumstance
was
an
ending,
which
offered
a
building
for
a
beginning. The
Nature
Theater
of
Oklahoma
is
a
family.
But
how
did
they
become
one?
What
ended
in
order
for
them
to
begin? And
what
of
all
the
bands,
performance
collectives,
theatre
and
dance
companies,
communes
that
would
have
begun
except
for
the
circumstance
of
their
beginnings
-
except
for
day
jobs
and
families,
arguments
and
aesthetic
rifts,
geographic
separation,
accidents
of
timing
and
communication?
What
would
have
had
to
end
for
each
to
have
begun?
