United Cowboys back in the Stedelijk museum 's-Hertogenbosch.
During Festival Boulevard 2011 United Cowboys was a revelation with Negen Nieuwe Naakten in the Stedelijk Museum 's-Hertogenbosch - at that time in process of construction- “gorgeously, fascinating, vulnerable and powerful at the same time”. (Volkskrant)
Last year the company succusfully presented Burn during the Festival Boulevard at the Willem-II Factory: a 5 hour lasting performance in which the audience could walk around and observe from all angles.
“Burn grabs your attention with strong images, powerful performers and penetrating music ". (Theaterkrant *****)
This year, United Cowboys is invited back in the Museum with Stand Alone.
There, 9 dynamic sculptures will be shown. The audience may approach closely, almost touch them. . Serene, Iconic, and at the same time robust and combative. Like the images at the Galery af the Palazzo Veccio in Florence.
But then anno 2015. Our heroes, our melancholy, our sins.
In Stand Alone, these intense performances eventually come together in a discharge of desire, hope, consolation and beauty.
