About The Event
Choreographer Holly Blakey and composer Mica Levi toy with the structure, sounds and vistas of the Western movie genre.
They create a scorched and sandy playground re-defined by dance and music.
Within this desolate landscape, counter-cultural identities crash and frolic with the classic filmic iconography of the American West.
Soon the swaggering strut of the archetypal cowboy begins to morph into a new language of movement.
As the performers question contemporary sexual politics and connect outlaws and outsiders everywhere, the desert becomes the dance floor.
