Description

No horse, no band of Apache warriors waiting with knives between their teeth, no pretty French cancan dancer for the hero to shag, no grit, dust or duty for historical accuracy. This cowboy doesn't care. The Wild West is just a click away on the World Wide Web. Fascinated by cowboys' squinty-eyed looks, and armed only with the savoir-faire of a modern geek, Raphael Gouisset, Associate Artist at La Manufacture Centre Dramatique National Nancy-Lorraine, stars in this digital western lauded for showing 'theatre and digital technologies can join forces for the best of live performance' (L'Est Républicain).

I came to the Fringe to see new forms of theatre, and I have found one.

Funny and very touching. For me it speaks intelligently about our connected way of life.
It made me think of the Hikikomori. A kind of Hikikomori but with Santiags;)

This is an absolutely brilliant show - one of the most creative, original and inventive we've seen. The fusion of theatre and digital works brilliantly, it's both funny and entertaining but also touches on the thought provoking theme concerning the digital worlds we create and enter. An outstanding performance and show!

A desiccated version of the Hollywood cowboy narrative, alluringly told through a blend of live theatre & digital media. Raphaël Gouisset's patchwork of old & new revels in unexpected synchronies, subtle humour & the act of reframing the familiar.
