Dan Daw

Dan has worked with Restless Dance Theatre, Australian Dance Theatre, and Force Majeure (Australia), FRONTLINEdance, Scottish Dance Theatre, balletLORENT, and Candoco Dance Company (UK), and with Skånes Dansteater (Sweden).

Throughout his performance career, Dan has worked with Kat Worth, Garry Stewart, Kate Champion, Janet Smith, Adam Benjamin, Wendy Houstoun, Sarah Michelson, Rachid Ouramdane, Nigel Charnock, Matthias Sperling, Marc Brew, Claire Cunningham, Martin Forsberg, Carl Olof Berg and Javier de Frutos.

Blurring the divide between theatre and dance, all work Dan commissions through his company Dan Daw Creative Projects, becomes a part of a series of attempts. With his work proposing that “success” and “failure” could possibly be the same thing, he plays, in different ways, with audience expectation in connection to his body’s deviating functionality.

Since 2014, Dan has worked as Associate Director to support Sydney-based Artistic Director Sarah-Vyne Vassallo to commission, develop and produce new work by and with disabled and non-disabled artists. He plays a key advisory role in the development and delivery of Murmuration’s artistic programs and community activities.
