Description

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. After a lifetime being an inspiration to others, Dan is seizing the moment to inspire himself and take ownership of the beautiful mess that encompasses all that he is. In an intimate evening with performer and collaborator Christopher Owen (Joe Moran, Scottish Dance Theatre) this show sees Dan take back the power by being dominated on his own terms.

The Scotsman (4/5 stars) 33 days ago

For this is Daw’s journey into pleasure and empowerment, where he can experience pain and degradation but on his terms, with a safe word, knowing he’s in complete control.
