Dan Daw explores the intersection of 'normal' and 'abnormal' through the lens of his ‘otherness'.
Working with innovative choreographer Martin Forsberg, designer Jenny Nordberg and lighting designer Guy Hoare, and inspired by the confronting images of photographer Joel-Peter Witkin, disabled performer Daw has created an intimate and hyper-theatrical spectacle that licks the eyeball of normality while charging down deviant neurological paths visiting sexual vertigo, expectation, intention and effect.
A leader in the conversation on dance and disability, Daw has worked with companies from Scottish Dance Theatre to Force Majeure, and is a part of the current cohort at Sadler’s Wells Summer University, where he continues to develop thinking around collaborative performance making for ‘mainstream’ contexts.
Note: This show has a complete lockout. Please arrive 15 minutes early as latecomers will not be admitted. This performance contains nudity and strobe lighting.
