Delve into two dance works examining identity and disability from performance artists Aby Watson and Dan Daw.

Overview

The dance works explore the artists’ individual lived experiences of disability, using the body itself to challenge our perception of normal bodies, function and dysfunction.

Watson’s new dance performance, -ish, is a performance of movement, object and speech. Using balloons, a space hopper and the human body, the Glasgow-based movement artist negotiates the territory between invisible and visible impairments. The balloons are old and deflating, the hopper is full and firm, and the human is a dyspraxic, dyslexic dancing woman.

In his intimate show On One Condition, Dan Daw reflects on his journey from growing up in rural Australia with cerebral palsy to an international dance career. The performance invites us to challenge our preconceptions, taking us on a journey through belonging, struggle, comfort and need. On One Condition is presented by Dan Daw Creative Projects and Murmuration, performed by Dan Daw, and devised and directed by Graham Adey.
