About hollow mountain:
A dark comedy that follows five friends through an outlandish inner-mountain adventure of demonic possession, self-mutilation and a little tap dance. Choreographed and Directed by Alyssa Martin with new music by Sydney Herauf, hollow mountain is a whimsically gory thriller about navigating the inner rocky territory of our psyches and trying to stay afloat in a world of endings.
Not in Montreal? Tell your friends who are. We'd love to meet them.
Collaborators: Alyssa Martin • Sydney Herauf • Drew Berry • Mary-Dora Bloch-Hansen • Brayden Cairns • Sam Grist • Natasha Poon Woo • Noah Feaver • David Bernstein • Taylor Young • Katie Mooney • Molly Reisman • Benjamin Landsberg

About Bin Chicken:
Inspired by her recent time in Sydney, Australia, when she became fascinated with a gaggle of delicate white birds, known as “bin chickens” due to their voracious appetite for trash, her zany new work looks at the parallels between the lives of these much-maligned birds and the behaviour of the rest of us. The score includes Beethoven's celebrated Sonata No. 29 (Hammerklavier) played live at each performance. This energetic new production promises to reveal a completely new side of TDT's dancers!
This production is generously supported by Ann H. Atkinson .
