Making drumming a theater experience, Dolan Davies brings her talent full-circle with a one-woman show set to launch in January of 2017. With touring dates beginning in the UK, the drummer turned performance artist will bring a hauntingly intimate scene to audiences worldwide.
London, UK -- (ReleaseWire) -- 05/17/2016 --Created to marry the arts to life by way of a personified childhood nightmare, drummer Dolan Davies will launch the theatrical show Feathers and Cogs come January. Making drumming a stand alone art form, Davies will begin her alternative one-woman show in the UK and then visit theaters worldwide. Meant to personify a reoccurring dream she had as a child, Davies music and visuals will entice with eerie nostalgia. Using the devices of rhythm, music, lights, and images she will bring a new experience to a new audience. An audience that will, without hesitation, hang on every beat like a voyeur.
Known best for her work with The Darkness and Bryan Ferry, Davies takes this leap into solo performance with eloquence. Heard on The Darkness' "Last Of Our Kind" album as well as Ferry's "Olympia" for Virgin Records, Davies' sound is widely-recognizable. Over the last ten years the drummer has performed with various other widely-known artists some of which include Tricky for the Mixed Race World Tour and the Thompson Twins throughout the U.S. and Asia. Adding to her impressive list, she has toured with XFactor artist, Janet Devlin, Becky Hill of The Voice fame, and most recently with new artist Rosie Lowe.
Davies said of the upcoming Feathers and Cogs tour, "This is alternative theater that explores dealing with, rejecting, and finally accepting my inner demons through drumming. My art is about personal freedom and I want my audiences to feel that journey so, my show contains dream-like and sometimes nightmarish sequences and visuals. Let's just say, I get my point across and bring beauty to what was at one time tyrannical."
