COWBOYSCOWGIRLS (sagittarius)  

 

COWBOYSCOWGIRLS (sagittarius) is an interactive performance installation by Pioneers Go East Collective that explores and explodes the myth of the American Cowboy and Cowgirl, looking with humor at how chauvinism and bravado transpose into Gay subculture. In the piece, audience members are invited to don Western attire and sit around a theatrical campfire while performers, both live and on video, share stories of bullying, self-discovery and coming out.
