If/Then actress Janet Krupin and musician-producer Alex Caraballo teamed up to create Trillium and "The Aurora" EP, which was released at an official EP party July 26 at New York City's Iron Bar.
At the 11 PM free event, Krupin and Caraballo were joined by DJ Kandylion and beat boxer Shockwave. The Book of Mormon's Christopher Rice and Pippin's Ariana DeBose also joined Trillium for a dance performance, and Daniel Brodie provided visuals.
According to press notes, "Janet Krupin and Alex Caraballo shocked themselves with how transcendent music can be when they created their first single Bandit within the first four hours of jamming together for the first time. He had a track, she had some lyrics, and they found out what happens when you put two people together who want to make music people love and blossomed with their shared desire to see more integrity and consciousness in the dance music scene."
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
