Dan Daw

"Certainly Daw's show is unlike anyting else you are likely to see... It's not an easy show but an uplifting one."
★★★★, The Guardian

"Without guilt, vulnerable, brilliant."
★★★★, The Stage

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.

Dan is joined in an intimate and playful encounter by performer and collaborator Christopher Owen, where Dan takes back the power by being dominated on his own terms.

Nominated for the 2021 National Dance Awards, the 2022 UK Theatre Achievement in Dance Award, The Dan Daw Show is a peek into a life determined by shame, but full of pride. This is a show about care, intimacy, and resilience; about letting go and reclaiming yourself.
