'Tucson Sundown Reprise' - electronic (video & audio), duration: 52secs
Description of work:
Old Tucson Studios is located just west of Tucson, it was built as a movie set and was used for many years as the setting for films and TV shows such as 'The High Chaparral'. It is now a theme park for tourists with daily reenactments of scenes from famous movies and saloon dancehall performances.During the peak season 'actors' perform the same songs and scenes up to 20 times a day.
'Sundown' is one of the archetypal events that characterises the Western USA as there is so little rainfall and many clear days - sundown is usually a very visible and aesthetic event that lends itself to a sentimental view of the 'Old West'.
