you swallow the cowboy. yonder demands.
in this speculative work of dance-theatre, a group of interdisciplinary Black queer and trans* artists take on america’s poisonous lust for the lone ranger.
using live electronic and folk music, archival video, dance and poetry, high noon casts a long shadow on the cowboy under the heat of an unrelenting sun.
