Glen Sheppard was born in Canada, where he studied acting at the Ryerson Theatre School. Glen works with musical source texts and deals with rituals and an awareness of time, which result in psychological choreographies and their echoes. Important works are: Y IS A QUESTION I KEEP ASKING (2018), ALEXANDRIA (2019), a correction of Händel’s ‘Il Trionfo del Tempo e del Disinganno’, AUSSER SICH (2019) a reworking of SALOME in collaboration with sound artist Tomas Nordmark and UNE MYSTIFICATION (2020 and 2022), a work constructed around the ‘Trois Chansons de Bilitis’ by Claude Debussy. In addition to his own works, Glen works as a Revival Director at the English National Opera and Director’s Collaborator with Netia Jones, most recently at the Opéra National de Paris. In May 2023, Glen presents UNTIL THE WATERS FOAM UP, a 9‑hour performance based on RUSALKA, to be followed in early September by I FURIOSI, a hybrid video-concert or ‘opera by stealth’ made using the second voices from Händels mid-1730s Ariosto trilogy at Uferstudios.
