Presented in celebration of Phillip Adams BalletLab’s 20th anniversary year, Glory embodies a philosophical ritualising of choreographic traditions, cinema, irreverence and conceptual art.
Glory evolved from source material including Bach’s Brandenburg Concerti, Hollywood television sit coms, and artist Yves Klein’s monochrome paintings. Frenetic, intricate and relentlessly virtuosic dancing culminates in a revelation of the almighty through a saturation of the colour pink.
Bringing together balletic opulence with seemingly incongruous pop culture references, Glory overstimulates the audience with an abundance of ideas in order to playfully validate and mock the notion of an artist-Creator. Glory splices together revelations and experiences of the divine.
Glory is presented as part of Dance Massive 2019.
