Trademark Theater describes The Hollow as a “music/movement mashup.” What, exactly, does that mean? “It’s a concept album performed live with movement and dance,” says Tyler Michaels King, the company’s artistic director. King is one of two performers who will be propelling the story through onstage movement. The other is his wife, Emily Michaels King, whose entrancing solo show Magic Girl was a highlight of this year’s Minnesota Fringe Festival. They’ll share the Tek Box space with seven musicians, including singer-songwriters Jenna Wyse and Joey Ford. “There’s a lot of exploration of the mysticism of the great outdoors,” says King, as well as an “exploration of a modern relationship.” This world premiere has been gestating for three years, about as long as Trademark has existed as a company. King and his collaborators have made it a hallmark of their process to involve their audience in the long-term development of new work. While King says The Hollow will have brooding, “super eerie” elements, it’s also “just a fucking rock concert, so we’re just gonna rock out and have an awesome night.” For tickets, email [email protected]
