In a duet charged with tension, two dancers experience the brutality that norms exert on their bodies. Between ecstasy and collapse, an energy builds up that threatens to shake everything. 12 years after its invitation to Tanztage, the Bessie Prize-winning piece returns to the Sophiensæle and, in a revised version, explores the interface between Queer Theory and Disability Studies. In its relentless vulnerability, Glory releases a smouldering, subversive force.
JEREMY WADE is a dancer and choreographer who graduated from the School for New Dance Development in Amsterdam in 2000. He also describes the years of intensive night clubbing in the New York gay scene as an important experience. The premiere of his first full-length piece Glory will take place in 2006 at the Dance Theater Workshop in New York. For the duet he received the New York Bessie Award. Jeremy Wade has lived and worked in Berlin since 2006, where he can devote himself entirely to choreography for the first time.
