hollow mountain is 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.
