The Cowboy Act Suite & Other Works

 Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre Wed, Sep 18, 2024 At 7:30pm

Fraser-Monroe’s intuitive take on the swashbuckling strut of the Cowboy informs this intellectual unpacking of a one-sided lens and flips the script to ask, what happens when an Indian directs the Cowboys through their history?
