gunslinger is a dance western choreographed by Megan Mazarick and performed by Gina Hoch-Stall, Kelsey Ludwig, Wendell Gray, Miles Yeung-Tieu, and Megan Mazarick. This fifty-minute dance theater work features virtuosic movement in a slowly transforming visual world. gunslinger explores the false front architecture of old western towns, galloping invisible horses, cardboard tumbleweeds rolling past fake cacti, the good sherif versus the evil villian, urban cowboys (a la Ginuwine’s “My Pony” video), and a morph of western iconography into suburban sprawl.
