On a mission to heal London, one lap dance at a time. A man of milk and honey, from Kwa-Zulu Natal in South Africa, He dreamt in black and white but now he bleeds rainbow. Tasting his past, confront your present. "Ingest me, test me, now your mind's so free. I said scream if you want to go faster". sugar-coated, soft-core, polylingual stand-up, lie-down, roll-over, beg-for-more loud-beats, wild-dancing Salvation: Shamanic Striptease exposes Daniel's body, voice and memories as a healing process extended to audiences. It uses 'black' and 'white' movement vocabularies to interrogate his white African identity. The legacies of Apartheid and Mandela's Rainbow Nation flow through him where they intercept his queer sexuality. Shamanic Striptease explores sexual desire as a conductor of spiritual longing. It mingles lap-dancing with incantations evoking ethnic, cultural and gender liberation. Salvation: Shamanic Striptease is part of 'Come As You Are', a three-week festival interrogating and celebrating gender from cis to trans, from binary to beyond. Developed in relationship with the Battersea Arts Centre. Age restriction: 15+
