Cowboys and Wurst

Cowboys and Wurst is a site-specific work commissioned by Springboard Performance for the 2015 Front Lawn Dances series. Created by kloetzel&co. with Deanne Walsh, Cowboys and Wurst is an over-the-top representation of the iconic Illichmann’s Sausage Shop in the Forest Lawn neighbourhood of Calgary. Employing everything from sausage link pillows to red Jell-O to giant stuffed animals, Walsh and Kloetzel dig up the wonderfully quirky and culturally diverse characteristics of this well-seasoned site.
