Dan Daw returned to iC4C for a 4-week residency developing his work The Dan Daw Show as part of Horizon‘s 2021 residency programme.

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

Teaming up award-winning with theatre director Mark Maughan, Dan takes ownership of the beautiful mess encompassing all that he is, lets go of who he once was, and makes room for who he wants to be.

Dan is joined by performer Christopher Owen (Joe Moran, Scottish Dance Theatre) in an intimate evening of play 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.
