THE BROGAN DAVISON SHOW (2019)
A brutally entertaining show about a worn out women’s place in the world.
Brogan Davison goes solo and is not afraid to come across as a socially awkward and emotionally fragile English women, revealing some of the most unflattering sides of herself. The vulnerable relationship between performer and spectator is a central aspect of the apparently desperate attempt to create the show of her life. It’s both funny and grand, absurd and ridiculous - but mostly a declaration of love for anyone who’s looking to find a meaningful place on the world.
Through Dance For Me’s vulnerable and off-key approach to performance making, guests can expect a raw performance full of love, rage, bravery and stupidity.
The Brogan Davison Show is a stand-up performance that can take place in a strangers home, a bar, a theatre or anywhere else it gets invited to.
