More about The Cowboy, the Princess and the Chicken

The production The Cowboy, the Princess and the Chicken by Banality Dreams is about living according to one’s ideals and expectations within the frame of everyday banalities and the absurd comedy of the mundane, with its fundamental brutality and tragedy.

Banality Dreams describes The Cowboy, the Princess and the Chicken like this:

"There is hardly anything that doesn't already exist. Ranging from questions such as the way we dress, put make-up on, nourish ourselves, lead friendships, meet somebody or do it for the first time, to questions about how we provide for our offspring or how we might like to die. For every aspect of life, there already exist countless completed, deliberated, experienced concepts, archetypes and models. These can be found in glossy magazines, films, books, newspapers and photos, even discussed in guidebooks, blogs, forums and TV broadcastings. To live means to choose and to create one's own variation out of the variety of possibilities. "Have it your way!" is how a successful fast food chain so simply phrases it.

In the new work of Banality Dreams, a cowboy, a princess and a chicken encounter each other in the here and now and forming from the outset, a bizarre combination crossing the unexpected paths of romanticism, family planning and friendship in the 21st century."

The Cowboy, the Princess and the Chicken by Banality Dreams was supported by Arts Council Norway.
