Both, Pauline and Maarten, create their own performance-sets based on their individual backgrounds, expertise and with a binding vision on performance and art. In discussion with each other, these works are the starting point for all artistic choices and projects. 

Pauline and Maarten portray the truthfulness of the human, its physical purity and the possibility to create an entirely new reality. Special resources: the visual and physical language and the powerful, performer related, concise virtuosity.


The Nude Study Menu represents a selection of performance pieces, created by Maarten van der Put, co-artistic director of United Cowboys. There is the possibility to include one or more of these performances in various programs (festivals, theaters, events,...) as ‘samples’. The following performances lend themselves perfectly to be presented on location, but are also very suitable for more traditional settings (theater, dance stages).
