Exclusive: Dan Daw's On One Condition to Play SoHo Playhouse
The work makes its American premiere.
SoHo Playhouse will present the American premiere of Dan Daw's On One Condition, directed by Graham Adey. Daw performs the work May 18-26. It is produced by Susan Winter and presented in association with Dan Daw Creative Projects and Murmuration.
On One Condition "draws on stories from Daw's lived experiences as a man living with cerebral palsy. It asks us to question our own perceptions of normal while offering a stripped back look at the world we live in. We invite you into Dan's childhood home and on a journey overseas to share in one man's undying search for perfection, as he attempts to hold the world on his shoulders in all its beauty and grotesqueness."
Blurring the divide between theater and dance, Daw's collaborations become part of a series of attempts. 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.
