World premiere

A deep and dirty dive into a family circle. 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. This is the story of a boy. He’s an atrocity with big ideals, he needed bread, not sun…

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

Age Recommendation: 14+
