As part of Reykjavík Dance Festival August edition, we will be doing a residency and visiting three houses to show previews of The Brogan Davison Show, which will premiere later this year as part of Everybody's Spectacular Festival in November 2017. We're excited to hang out you all!
Continuing on their quest to critically explore the staging of ‘the self’, The Brogan Davison Show is Dance For Me’s fourth project which dives even further into exploring the relationship of a lived life and it’s representation.
The Brogan Davison Show takes the format of a solo stand-up performance which happens in the living room of a volunteer ‘host’ who invites their friends, family, neighbours, pets, acquaintances or strangers to spend an evening of The Brogan Davison Show with. In the show, Brogan, a self-deprecating, mouthy and mentally unwell woman, tells stories from her working class childhood home in England, gives cooking tips and sings songs inspired by her favourite TV show Downton Abbey.
Through Dance For Me’s vulnerable and off-key approach to performance making, guests can expect a brutally raw performance full of love, rage, bravery and stupidity through song, dance, stand-up and storytelling.
