Common Is As Common Does: A Memoir

Common Is As Common Does: A Memoir is a deep and dirty dive into a family circle that more often resembles a ring of fire. Part saloon (there’s crooner country classics), speakeasy (brush/scuffing danceathons) and bare knuckle boxing ring (it’s going to kick off), join us in our Wild West sitting room with the ones who spit and the ones born to fight. This is the story of a boy. He’s an atrocity with big ideals, he needed bread, not sun…

This dance momento mori mashes feats of physical endurance with the end of the night at the Grand Ole Oprey. Using tropes of a Western movie, it explores how experience of poverty and violence can shape a man.
