Virgo Star explores and explodes the myth of the American Cowboy. An underground, kinetic ride through the Cowboy myths performed from a queer perspective, this dance-theatre work fuses personal storytelling and movement to re-create scenes from Western Movies. A live cinematic experience and a satirical take on Classic Western Movies, Virgo Star combines personal stories with dark comedy to reflect on mainstream “Cowboy” iconography from a queer perspective. The performance examines same-sex intimacy, self-awareness, and fear of being marginalized in a fictional West. With Virgo Star, the collective looks with humor at how chauvinism and bravado transmit into gay subculture.
