    I offer myself to Thee

    A hallucinogenic play about the body’s relationship to the untenable, the great void, the grain of sand in the vastness of empty space, with a revelation that life is about moving towards love and not away from it.

    „I am glad to see you, because the world is really fucked up
    I thought the world is really sad, but now it’s ok because I am here with you
    But I’m still going off on my own
    The Consciousness
    To serve my purpose in the universe, I have to go along
    There’s loads of stuff going on, that made your life a problem
    Politics of a world you’ve never heard of“
    Anonymous Boy on a trip on Salvia Divinorum, youtube.com/watch?v=yWsKjARxcrw

    I OFFER MYSELF TO THEE is a generous gift to the audience, a tightrope walk between surrender and control in a performance situation, emphasizing the fragility of live performance. Wade is trying to surrender as a performer on stage: to his movement material, to his habits as a performer, to his style and to the audience as well as the theatrical machinery.

    “Naked, naked, naked, the supremacy of the feather, I do grant myself, and fall in every conversation, just around the corner, where flowers pick all petals of oneself, just around the corner of distant countries…
    Things do end
    Ha ha ha“
    Baltazar Castor for Jeremy Wade

    I OFFER MYSELF TO THEE attempts an excitable and sensitive space, working with the magnification of sensation. We offer you, the audience, a starting point for your own trip and invite you to follow us on this journey.

  3. there is no end to more
    A disembodied spectacle in the style of a Children's Television Show (not appropriate for children) with the grand theme of man's relationship to endless more, the untenable and the ungraspable. Including: lessons taught by five year old girls about the Government and Infinity, singing and dancing with your favorite animals and postmodernist reflections about endless space! Let us introduce you to The Power Point Girls, our friends Melty, Buddy the Bear, Flush, Yoko and our lovable host Jared Gradinger! Welcome to “there is no end to more”!
    For his fifth evening length piece Jeremy Wade steps off the stage and directs a highly mediated solo for performer Jared Gradinger. The project, commissioned by the Japan Society, New York began during a month long research period in the mega city of Tokyo. “there is no end to more” investigates the relations of global consumer culture, Kawaii or cute aesthetics, utopian visions of TV, and vertigo inducing science fiction.
    The project was developed in collaboration with NY Writer Marcos Rosales, Japanese illustrator Hiroki Otsuka, Berlin based video artist Veith Michel, musician Brendan Dougherty and architect Henning Ströh.

Jeremy Wade conjures an ecstatic awareness simultaneously somatic and conceptual. His choreography of stuttering, trembling, contorting, spasming bodies severs choreographyʼs anticipated relationship to mobility and stasis, graceful expertise and beautiful uncertainty. At the precarious edge of collapse, the dancers appear disarticulated and out of control as they attempt to expel themselves from their corporeal, emotional, and psychological limits. Wadeʼs volatile and erotic physicality questions the terms of virtuosic movement, instead privileging intense sensation and disorientation. –Jenn Joy
