From the show:
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.
See it if Themes include cowboy macho culture, closeted man seduction.. Ambiguous; Multi-media installation; way too experimental
Don't see it if flashy & loud at times; weak ensemble; words make little sense
