Reflecting on Daniel’s real life experiences The Orchid and the Crow is a solo performance: part story-telling, part cabaret, part theatre, featuring original songs from the award-winning writers of Die Roten Punkte. Segueing between rock, pop, and contemporary opera, Daniel effortlessly draws the audience into the inspiring tale of his almost-death experience.

Since 2006, Clare Bartholomew and Daniel, a Salvador Dinosaur have produced four award-winning Die Rotem Punkte live shows, with corresponding albums, that have toured to the USA, UK, New Zealn, Ireland, Belgium, Hungary, Poland, Canada and Germany.
