Yee-haw! Featuring a mesmerising original score composed by Ben Ely (Regurgitator), set in the imagined sweeping landscape of a classic old western, Cowboy is an interactive, solo contemporary dance work.

From surfing trains to taming horses to wandering the desert, this work unpacks your ability to have a complete, genuine, and meaningful experience as an imagined self.

Saddle up and enter the world of Cowboy for a poignantly funny yet sensitive ride.
