From a literal standpoint, this show plays on the idea of endings. Ends of phrases are emphasized, repeated, and made into musical effects.
Visually there is a lot of opportunity to create moments with the end of lines in the drill, props and color guard. From a figurative standpoint, the term being at the “end of one’s rope” relates to being stressed, and towards the end of your patience. The music tries to represent some of those feelings while creating the space for great vertical moments.
