Gloria's pieces have been performed at festivals such as Performing Arts Festival Berlin, Balance Club / Culture Festival Leipzig, and Out Now! Bremen. After studying Theatre, Film and Media and Performance Studies, Gloria was invited to residencies at Seoul Dance Center, K3 (Limited Edition) and Nave in Santiago de Chile.

Their research touches upon questions of self-determination about one‘s own body and the data that is produced by it.
