Cowpuncher: Holly Blakey x Mica Levi

Choreographer Holly Blakey and composer Mica Levi toy with the structure, sounds and vistas of the Western movie genre.

Costumes from Andreas Kronthaler’s playful collection for Vivienne Westwood bring the characters to life, as together they create a scorched and sandy playground, redefined 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.

Cowpuncher is a Southbank Centre commission.
