Hollow Bones is a collaboration between butoh performer Frankie Mulinix (Vandellous), dance designer Nadya Zeitlin, visual artists Dima Alekseev and Katya Kouznetsova.


First version of this work premiered early April, 2021 at the Dance Hub ATL. 

In May, 2021 we brought this work to audiences in Piedmont Park in a format of a site-specific pop up performance. In September, 2021 we presented another version, adapting it to the environment of South River Arts Studios for their Sunset Series. 

Currently, we are expanding this work to a trio to present it as a part of the Art on the Atlanta Beltline outdoor public art festival in April, 2022. 



We are auditioning two performers for a total group of three. Frankie Mulinix (Vandellous) will be the third performer and will be present at auditions.

We are looking for moving artists interested in exploring the topic of the piece, appreciative of dance theatre and butoh mediums, strong improvisers, experienced in or curious about site-specific performances. 

It’s important for us to incorporate various stories of “looking for ways to belong” inside of this work, and we’re interested in creating with artists of different backgrounds and ethnicities.

By means of butoh, dance theater, outstanding costume and set design elements, this work explores how life-changing leaps of faith require personal loss in the hope of a better life. Hollow Bones explores awakening to a strange world where performers are the aliens, encountering pivotal moments where they have to choose to embrace change and let go of the familiar parts of themselves and their prior life. 

This is an outside site-specific production. Performers will be moving in, out and around 3 large spherical objects.
