Fall into the dreamscape of a queer, solitary soul, whose subconscious is being tampered with by a mysterious, other-worldly cowboy.
Cowboy Dreaming explores the world of dreams, queer ideology and the enigma of the cowboy; a complex character who all at once embodies a sex symbol, queer icon, solo adventurer, and superhero.
This show employs a range of forms to entertain, evoke and intrigue audiences. Through the artistry of gender bending and blending, puppetry, striptease, clowning and cinema, Cowboy Dreaming honours the emotional landscapes, miracles and natural disasters of queer life.
