These days everything seems to be wrong for Roni, from her stupid name that nobody can pronounce to a body that somebody else must have the instructions for. Meanwhile, Mia wonders how life got so messy. Together, Roni and Mia take us on a journey through family, personal identity, 90s R&B slo-jams, birthday cakes, flavoured condoms and first adventures in sex, love and death through dance and spoken word.
A contemporary hiphop dance theatre performance about many kinds of love,Glorious is a female-led exposé of the heightened emotions surrounding motherhood, adolescence, growing up and letting go. Combining talking, dancing, reminiscing and paper aeroplanes, Glorious is an unfiltered social commentary on contemporary life, inspiring audiences and provoking debate.
Fly No Filter combines dance, creative writing, spoken word and the subversive culture of hip-hop to create arresting, physical, narrative dance theatre.
Artistic Director Lucy Crowe has been creating dance theatre since 2000, showing work at venues including The Place, Stratford Circus and Sadler’s Wells. The Glorious Tour is Lucy’s first production with Fly No Filter.
