"Staged as a country thriller, the production Death and reincarnation as a cowboy, perhaps Rodrigo García's strongest and most controversial text, sheds lights on the daily infernos, fully exploiting the grimaces of laughter. The only voice implied by the playwright has been fragmented by the director and adapted to contemporary women, living examples of the wonder woman syndrome. The four actresses furiously, but lucidly, throw in our faces the human degradation, the visceral laughter and the impossible love, and their polyphony becomes a delirious confession, a post-absurdist puzzle. This floating island, the flickering reality in which Rodrigo García's extreme-contemporary text has been transposed on stage, is accompanied by country music hit songs, reminiscent of a lost era. The acting is willingly theatrical, through mechanized gestures, grotesque grimaces or obsessive heel sounds, permanently gliding through different rhythms, as a plea for saving colliding feminine universes. This type of playwriting invites to deciphering rather than visionarism, the immersion in García's chaotic world proposes a culture of the commentary, a second game in complicity with the text. «When disaster comes, it comes and it comes for us all!»" (Andrei Măjeri)
