THE BROGAN DAVISON SHOW (2019)
The Brogan Davison Show is a stand-up performance that plays with the vulnerable relationship between a performer and their audience.
Standing alone onstage Brogan Davison - a socially awkward, mentally-fragile English woman - enters in a huge puff of smoke to give the performance of a lifetime. Her show dances on the delicate line of great success and total failure, celebrating the fragile and often absurd nature of life. As hilarious as it is sincere, this event is a naive and grandiose attempt of a lonely human to connect to world and the people within it.
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.
