About the performance

The creators of the production are also the authors of the text.  

Weapons are everywhere. Racism is embedded deep in the system. Human life is cheap. Women are reduced to goods. Gender is normative. Alcohol is drunk instead of water. The only measure of success is money. Love is forbidden. Violence is the law. 

Jolene and Jimmy McLeane lived far away from the city. And loved each other so very much. One day Jimmy left in search of the gold and disappeared. Jolene is looking for him relentlessly among the cities of the Wild West. On her way she must part with everything making her human, rise above herself and the dangers of the oppressing world around her. Her path turns into a struggle between the good and the evil. And the boundaries between the two are becoming less and less clear. And then Jolene arrives to Jackson Town…

Not Dead Enough. Western. Set somewhere in a land and time far, far away. But it could also be a story of here and now. Devised performance is playing with transmission of the film genre into a theatre space. It reflects the struggle of an everyday person against the system. It explores, who is the sheriff of the 21. century’s Wild West. It challenges our stereotypes about gender roles, confronts us with oppression, challenges basic social norms and sets an all-encompassing question: how much are our lives really worth?

*The text is summarized from the webpage of the performance.

"The story of Jolene, who is searching for her Jimmy in the joints of the Wild West, incorporates the reflections of Tarantino's The Hateful Eight and Kill Bill. Devised approach is particularly clear in the elements of the storyline that try to deconstruct machistic, chauvinistic and racist matrix of the western." (Rok Bozovičar, Radio Slovenija)

Première: 24. 7. 2020
