The Dan Daw Show


After having spent a lifetime being an inspiration to others, Dan is finally seizing the moment to inspire himself.

Directed by Mark Maughan (The Claim, Petrification), Dan takes ownership of the beautiful mess that encompasses all that he is, and lets go of who he once was to make room for who he wants to be.

is joined in an intimate evening of play by performer and collaborator Christopher Owen (Joe Moran, Scottish Dance Theatre) where 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. This is a show about care, intimacy and resilience, about letting go and reclaiming yourself.
