Dance For Me is the Reykjavík based award-winning collaboration of British performance maker and choreographer Brogan Davison and the Icelandic maker and director Pétur Ármannsson. Located within the field of biographical performance, their work explores the relationship of a lived life and it’s representation, exploring questions that arise from the act of staging a ‘self’ through their trademark vulnerable and off-key approach to performance making.

Their first project Dance for me (2013) propelled them into the international performance scene and they have since made Petra (2014), Stripp (2016) and The Brogan Davison Show (2017), which have been presented in Dance and Theatre contexts worldwide, including: Iceland, Germany, Norway, Denmark, the UK, the Netherlands, Finland, Italy, Sweden, Switzerland and Canada in venues including Lókal International Performance Festival, Reykjavík Dance Festival (Iceland), Mousonturm (Germany), BIT Teatergarasjen (Norway) and Bora Bora, (Denmark).

Dance For Me are associate artists of Lókal Performance Festival in Reykjavík and part of the N.O.W. network, a European research and development project for the performing arts.
