I Can See You're A Cowboy performance workshops 2018-2019. 

A project spanning 1 year and 4 workshops, inviting men to dress in semi-cowboy attire and engage in benign ritualistic behaviours that give the impression of purpose, often involving heavy physical exertion.

 

The workshops explore the place of fantasy, narrative and sense of self within labour and the function of performative reenactment in the everyday. 

 

Isolating and abstracting familiar Western scenes with minimal prompts and direction,these workshops moved through contemporary dance to absurd theatre. 

 

Narrative laden objects evoke an inorganic, nostalgic space.
