The Dan Daw Show

About The Dan Daw Show

Dan is commissioning theatre director Mark Maughan to create ‘The Dan Daw Show’ as a continuation of their initial research, ‘Porno’, which was supported by Jerwood Choreographic Research Project II in 2017.

“In all I do as a disabled performer inspiration is ever present. Although never setting out to intentionally inspire audiences, more often than not their praise and the resulting conversation, mostly with non-disabled audience members, centres around their having been “inspired” by me.” Dan Daw

As much as it is a work generally exploring inspiration porn, ‘The Dan Daw Show’ will go deeper, looking at Dan’s relationship to audiences by acknowledging the pressure they place on him, because of his disability, and the pressure he places upon himself to be an inspiration for them.

Ready to tour from January 2020.
