Last year, United Cowboys surpised press and audience with the ongoing performance Burn:
The movements of the dancers, the music, the visual elements, they are all equally part of the work; therfore, terms like decor, musical assistance and choreography as such don't fit.. There is a difference wtih palstic art or more static performance art though, in that sense that there are definitely different attention spans, although not narrative (..) reminds of grey clubs in Berlin, of raves like Burning Man. Once the association is set, you feel the urge of joining, which only increases the power of Burn....Burn grabs your attention, not with big stories, but with imaginative images, strong performers and penetrating music. It provides a world (..) that continuously surprises" (***** Theaterkrant over Burn van United Cowboys-Theaterfestival Boulevard Den Bosch 2014)
In the Tanzfaktur in Cologne we build another biotope, in which dancers, performers, musicians and a camera man will attend, The audience is invited to observe and absorbe this world from all angles and in his own timing. United Cowboys challenges the spectator to either stay or leave and maybe come back later. . Burn could last infinite.
With Burn,United Cowboys investigates the mentality of the dancer / performer, and certainly that of the spectator. A challenging production. Where does the dancer focus on, now that he has no front, no fixed audience either, and where does the audience look at, now that there are no set seats nor a predetermined viewing time.
Burn in Keulen is the start of a longer collaboration between United Cowboys and 687Performance and is supported by DansBrabant/Impuslgelden BKKC and the city of Cologne.
