A performance on the verge of dance, concert and drama. A constant struggle on the back of a bull as a metaphor of the struggle with life.
"Once upon a time, there was a miss rodeo.
She grew up alone.
She didn't have a mommy or a daddy.
She lives in a caravan.
Rides into town on horseback.
Everybody knows her."
What if ordinary existence is more unstable than riding a wild bull? Alcohol? Medication? Drugs? Rock and roll? What to do with the money we're drowning in, but it doesn't bring us happiness? How many tears are too many tears?
A study of grief of a once-famous racer whose existence is much in doubt. Fame, trophies, admiration and money do not satisfy her inner needs. Daily training is just a band-aid for her dark thoughts. A life of teary-eyed, unfathomable bouts of self-pity. The theme of loneliness and feelings of separation from society. An exploration of slumps, feelings of failure and misunderstanding, the constant drive to win and succeed. Miss RODEO is left alone in a glittering costume among the trophies.
