Inspired by the epic battles of childhood and a passion for action films, Glory examines the complexities of violent behaviour and its glorification in our media-drenched culture. Through a cinematic lens, with first-person video material, Glory takes the audience through multiple images and expressions on the amplification of experience and violence in society.
A company of 6 bold and dynamic performers create a physical essay around numerous themes of glorification. Creating rich and dark imagery through visceral and impactful choreography, Glory pushes the audience to question the purpose and reasoning of violent material in society.
