2021 – Glad Theatre // STORMEN (Contemporary dance, Inclusive)
THE SHOW : STORMEN
Throughout life, we find ourselves in stormy weather. We dream about changes or even about becoming someone else. When the storm has settled, we must find our way back home. We see things in a new perspective, dream about new ways, new places, find ourselves in a new reality to which we must relate. Until the stormy weather hits again.
Being in the eye of the hurricane can be terrifying. But even when it seems darkest, it is possible to take control of your own destiny, to step out and find your way back home.
STORMEN is a contemporary inclusive dance trio, created in collaboration by the Spanish choreographer Antonio Quiles and director Lars Werner Thomsen. A Co-production between HamletScenen (Hamlet Stage) and Glad Theatre.
Duration : 45 min
THE COMPANY : Glad Theatre
Glad Theatre was established in 2006. For 15 years, they have been challenging the state of performing art by creating performances with actors with disabilities.
Their performances range from the experimental performance universe to retelling classic stories in new ways and have a special strength in the physical and visual expression. The performances are not necessarily aimed for an audience with disabilities but are all suitable for a mixed audience.
Glad Theatre and co-producer HamletScenen share the artistic vision that Inclusive Arts should have an equal position in the performing arts landscape. STORMEN is the first step in a long-term artistic and political collaboration.
Glad Theatre wish to broaden the knowledge of Danish Inclusive Art by performing, co-producing and touring worldwide.
The aim is to move audiences around the globe with their untraditional and high-quality performances by spreading images and understanding of how artists with disabilities by their work can contribute to making the art world, as well as the general culture, a more open, diverse, and inspiring place.
