A loving smile that mutates into a devilish grin. Two bodies, shaken by eruptive explosions, trembling and twitching, vulnerable and full of energy at the same time. The Bessie-award winning piece "Glory" by Berlin-based choreographer Jeremy Wade continues to be of rousing intensity even in its fourth adaptation. An unconditional, naked duet in which Wade and dancer Sindri Runudde live through the brutality that norms exert on the body. To the stirring electro sounds of Lou Drago, two bodies struggle with agony and ecstasy, developing a dance of non-belonging in which the opposite poles of shame, remorse, humiliation, intoxication, and finally submission and surrender are transformed and disrupted.
