The second in a two-dance suite set in a waiting tomb, Ending After is concerned with a couple's demise not through death, but due to the subjects' own self-destruction.
The history of the couple is portrayed through snapshots of them moving through space together over time, traces of remembered cooperation in laying down a path by which to live. When each of them starts becoming more concerned with what and how she (he) is building rather than how to build together, their coordinated effort deteriorates rapidly until they are each dancing in their own spheres.
The anger of rejection is translated through one dancer's body into rapid sweeping movements that cover large swaths of space and through another's body as the dogged repetition of movements in the vertical plane which increase in both tempo and precision until the individual whirlwinds of each dancer spin into the other's sphere and destroy the environment they had previously shared.
