THE BROGAN DAVISON SHOW
BY DANCE FOR ME
During the August edition of Reykjavík Dance Festival, DFM plan to work on their newest project The Brogan Davison Show and visit three houses during the week to present a preview of the show.
Dance For Me will be looking for 5 hosts for The Brogan Davison Show in the Everybody's Spectacular: Reykjavík International Performance Art Festival in November. Stay tuned!
Continuing on their quest to critically explore the staging of ‘the self’, The Brogan Davison Show is Dance For Me’s fourth project which dives even further into exploring the relationship of a lived life and it’s representation.
The Brogan Davison Show takes the format of a solo stand-up performance which happens in the living room of a volunteer ‘host’ who invites their friends, family, neighbours, pets, acquaintances or strangers to spend an evening of “The Brogan Davison Show” with. In the show, Brogan, a self-deprecating, mouthy and mentally unwell woman, tells stories from her working class childhood home in England, gives cooking tips and sings songs inspired by her favourite TV show Downton Abbey.
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 through song, dance, stand-up and storytelling.
-Since forming in 2013 in Reykjavík, Dance For Me - lead by Brogan Davison (UK) and Pétur Ármannsson (IS) - have created performances (Dance for me, Petra and Stripp), which have been presented in Dance and Theatre contexts worldwide, including: Iceland, Germany, Norway, Denmark, the UK, Finland, Italy, Switzerland and Canada; and in venues including, LÓKAL International Theatre Festival and Reykjavík Dance Festival (Reykjavík, Iceland), Mousonturm (Frankfurt, Germany), BIT Teatergarasjen (Bergen, Norway) and Bora Bora (Aarhus, Denmark), amongst others.
