TM Hollow Sm.jpg

THE HOLLOW weaves fragments of haunting imagery and eerie melodies into an abstract music experience. Loosely inspired by Washington Irving’s The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, THE HOLLOW focuses on the mystical setting of the famous American ghost story while bringing the classic tale into a thrilling contemporary setting. The evening kicks off with special guests Val Son.

TM Premiere Sm.jpg

Chris and Julie are young, married, liberal, and struggling. After the bizarre disappearance of their dog Jack, their relationship fractures and sends them each on a crash course with strangers who hold vastly different worldviews. As they search for answers in a world divided by politics and unflinching beliefs, they start to wonder, “Is it ever possible to truly understand someone?”
