Following a sell-out run of Beast at Sydney Festival 2018, Dan Daw Creative Projects returns to Sydney to bring you the highly anticipated Australian premiere of their critically acclaimed show, The Dan Daw Show.

The Dan Daw Show is a peep into the shiny and sweaty push pull of living with shame while bursting with pride.

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

Owning 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 Critics’ Circle National Dance Awards, and directed by Mark Maughan (The Claim, Petrification), The Dan Daw Show is a show about care, intimacy and resilience, about letting go and reclaiming yourself.

“Certainly, Daw’s show is unlike anything else you are likely to see”
★★★★, The Guardian

“Unapologetic, vulnerable, brilliant”
★★★★, The Stage

All shows of The Dan Daw Show are captioned. All shows are relaxed performances, meaning audiences are welcome to move around, come and go, make noise, stim and tic as they need. Every performance is preceded by a Pre Show Access session. From one hour before the show, for 30 minutes, one of the team can bring audience members into the performance space. They can demonstrate where captions for the show will be displayed and their Trigger Warning Symbol for light and sound intensity. Audience members can explore the set, props and stage in whatever way they prefer. It is an opportunity for people to see where they will be seated, the entrances and exits to the performance space, routes to the Quiet Room and toilet facilities. If it is of benefit, there is a priority boarding system. This means that some audience members can enter before everyone else. They have a Trigger Menu that lists the potential triggers they think are included in the show. If more explanation is required, one of the team is available to answer questions and address concerns. Hearing loops are also available in the York Theatre, amplifying sound for specific areas of seating. If you require hearing loop access, please advise the Box Office when booking.

Seymour Centre has bathroom facilities and a range of food and beverage options available for purchase. They also recommend trying some of their favourite local restaurants and bars, which offer food and beverage deals for Seymour ticket-holders. More information at seymourcentre.com
