Sinopse

After having spent a lifetime being an inspiration to others, Dan is finally seizing the moment to inspire himself. Taking ownership of the beautiful mess that encompasses all that he is, Dan lets go of who he once was to make room for who he wants to be. Joined in an intimate evening of play by performer and collaborator Christopher Owen, Dan takes back the power by being dominated on his own terms. The Dan Daw Show is a peep into the shiny and sweaty push pull of living with shame while bursting with pride. It is a show about care, intimacy and resilience, about letting go and reclaiming yourself. — Dan Daw Creative Projects

Author's bio text

Dan is the artistic director/CEO of Dan Daw Creative Projects. Dan Daw Creative Projects is a disabled-led company that works collaboratively with a growing network of companies and artists to develop and tour new performance work that blurs the divide between theatre and dance. The company has presented its work at British Dance Edition, Swedish Performing Arts Biennale, Sydney Festival, Sophiensaele, SoHo Playhouse and Sadler’s Wells. The work of Dan Daw Creative Projects explores what it means for queer, crip bodies to occupy, and be unapologetic in, non-disabled spaces. We are interested in the function access, care, consent and joy have in those spaces.

Pre-performance access session (18:00)
This session is aimed at all people with specific access needs who could benefit from being in the space beforehand and finding out more about the performance before it begins, or who may feel anxious about its content or going to the theatre. These sessions take place in the foyer of the Auditorium and are free upon presentation of a ticket for The Dan Daw Show. The sessions are led by the performance's team and are also interpreted in Portuguese. The aim of these sessions is to offer the most flexible and individualised response possible to all those present, who will be able to experience the performance's most intense light or loudest sound.
