Daniel grew up in a Jewish-atheist household. At 29, he found out he had stage-four testicular cancer and went searching for God... Any God. Enter Lance Armstrong.

Reflecting on Daniel's real life experiences, The Orchid and the Crow is a solo performance; part storytelling, part cabaret, part theatre, featuring original songs from the award-winning writers of Die Roten Punkte.
