A topless man is lifted up by a person behind them. The man has a silver chain around his need, has tattoos on his arms and a grimaced expression on his face. The person behind has their hands on the mans waist and neck.

Dance: The Dan Daw Show at Project Arts Centre, Captioned, Audio Described and Relaxed Performances

22 - 23 Sep 2023, 12:00 am - 12:00 am (Past)

Project Arts Centre, Temple Bar, Dublin 2

Presented by Dublin Fringe Festival

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 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.

Nominated for the 2021 National Dance Awards, the 2022 UK Theatre Achievement in Dance Award and directed by Mark Maughan (The Claim, Petrification), 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.
