Inspired by the complexities of the American Revolution, Gloria’s Cause is a dance-driven rock treatment of the colonies’ iconic moments and forgotten players. Warped replays of iconic moments like the Boston Tea Party juxtapose with video testimony from marginalized citizens of today in a layered, colorful and gritty look at the roots of America’s inequities.
The Enlightenment was rooted in the belief that reason could bring a new era of happiness for all. But the visionaries who proclaimed equality as an inalienable right wore blinders keeping the plight of slaves, women and Native Americans out of view. Original music and a spectrum of theatrical tools shed urgency and dark humour on Revolutionary ironies and today’s core conflicts.
