We find ourselves at an interesting crossroads: jobs have disappeared and it doesn’t seem like they’re coming back. Student loans and home foreclosures and the rising number of people on food stamps and unemployment make the news daily. What do you do when hard work just isn’t enough anymore?
How do you create your own happiness and manifest your own destiny, when everything seems so bleak?

How do you keep optimistic in these dark times?

SOMETHING EPIC/EVERYDAY explores the concept of creating your own American Dream – whatever that means. 

Researched, created, and performed by Tara Coen, Noah Dunham, Noelle Eaton, and Devon Wade Granmo; with direction by Ashley Hollingshead, SOMETHING EPIC/EVERYDAY is a mash up of found text, song lyrics, and everyday life. 

Don’t worry — there will be singing and dancing in our future.

SOMETHING EPIC/EVERYDAY is the first (official) collaboration between The Working Theatre Collective and Action/Adventure Theatre. It’s been a long time coming. 

The Working Theatre Collective is an ensemble based company that is dedicated to producing new works. We focus on aggressively artistic, DIY productions in unexpected spaces. Through working to produce art we find the heart of living!

Action/Adventure Theatre is a not-for-profit Portland-based performance collective that collaborates and experiments with local artists of varied disciplines and actively engages and cultivates a new audience base. Action/Adventure strives to broaden Portland’s supportive artistic network and create work that is inspiring, relevant, and speaks to the universal and the local experience.
