About Worldwidewestern
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).
