In cities across Europe, United Cowboys creates new biotopes every time that become temporary homes for dancers, performers and musicians. After a while the Cowboys pack up and move on. Performers join the tableau de la troupe, others they leave. Match, for instance, resembles the fairy tale The Golden Goose: Grimm for the year 2017, meandering here and there, without a home.
A grim prospect? It can be. United Cowboys is intense, exhausting, all the way. But also exquisitely soft, like downy feathers. The extremes are united in Match whose dancers, performers and musicians come so close you can feel their breath. Visitors walk around inside the live installation to put their viewing codes to the test.
At Boulevard 2015 and 2016 the company from Eindhoven took the festival by storm with Burn and This is not a Sad song, two uncompromising shows about the mania that is life.
