TYPICAL SET-UP OF MASTERCLASS*

United Cowboys offers Masterclasses which can be booked privately, or can easily be embedded in festival programs, educational programs or performing arts events.

Framework
The "biotope" created by United Cowboys, functions as an environment for improvisation and development of new, individual material durning the Masterclass.
The strongly physical masterclasses start by introducing tools for a radical presence on stage, related to the challenging balance between vulnerability and power. All participants are invited to present their physicality and defend their individual territory.
The individual profiles, as result of this introduction, will be the foundation for a guided and structured improvisation at first. 
The further the Masterclass evolves, the more freedom and space will be conquered.
Eventually, the group works up to an ongoing set-up of dance, images, structures and flows.

Goals

  • Explore individual approaches to movement in an intimate setting, based on the "biotope" environment.
  • Investigate multidisciplinary inputs from the field of image, dance, music and site-specific structures.
  • Spark collaborations and exchange initiatives
