Last night a cowboy saved my life

In Last night a cowboy saved my life, the laws of society - to which we naturally surrender - are put to the test. It is about a journey, looking for the contradiction of life, just to find that life is a never-ending search for love. In this solo theatre performance, the actress plays out her own coming-of-age story and brings the spectator back to the basics of theatre: the power of storytelling in a language everyone knows - Hollywood. Set in America in the 1970s, the performance raises questions on individualism and whether the world is ever going to change. History repeats itself. Crisis after crisis, war after war. How can we live with the powerlessness and the void it leaves behind?
