13 July – 7 August 2015

Graham Adey and Dan Daw started working together at Skånes Dansteater during the company’s spring season in 2014. As an emerging choreographer Graham is interested in looking at social structures, what is considered as normal behaviour and how that is reflected through different cultures. He is interested in curating stories from Dan’s lived experiences that reflect people’s attitudes towards him on first meetings, from his adolescence to the present day. ‘On One Condition’ is essentially based around anecdotes of Dan growing up in rural Australia. Graham is very excited to create the work in the very place where these stories originate, so visiting Australia is a very important part of the creative process.

‘On One Condition’ is a co-production between Dan Daw Creative Projects and Murmuration.
