Natasha Poon Woo in Rock Bottom Movement's hollow mountain. Choreographed by Alyssa Martin with Music by Sydney Herauf, Lighting Design by Noah Feaver and Set by Katie Mooney

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 Pony Nicole 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.
