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“
