What happens when a comedian tries their hand at dance? What happens when a dancer performs stand up? Award winning comedian Daniel Nicholas might have the answer in his latest show D.A.N.C.E.
D.A.N.C.E, is ‘developing a new comedy experience’ and features comedians and dancers working together, sharing the stage to entertain you. With the first half of the show focused on the comedians performing their material and dancers improvising and reacting on stage with them, and then the second half of the show it changes gears with the comedians dancing to the dancer doing stand up.
This unique show is brought to you by Leicester comedian Daniel Nicholas, and received arts council funding at the start of the year to put on these events and create a documentary which will be out at the start of next year. Nicholas;
“It’s an interesting concept, and a fun show. Really through doing it what I want to show, is that anyone who thinks ‘Dance is not for me’ can see this and perhaps think differently. Same for anyone who thinks that stand up comedy is just swearing and picking on people. It’s been getting some really great feedback and its wonderful to see these different performers working together”
D.A.N.C.E will return to the Attenborough Arts Centre and will have a disability focus, featuring performers who identify themselves as having a disability, including Gareth Berliner (as seen on Coronation Street), Laurence Clark, Spring Day,Tiiu Mortley, Priya Mistry and more.
D.A.N.C.E. is at Attenborough Arts Centre on the 29th October.
