The Hinterlands new original outdoor performance Will You Miss Me?:
A haunting song echoing across the holler draws a traveler into a funeral service for one of many white workers who moved from Appalachia to Detroit in the last century. But this is no normal funeral and this is no ordinary corpse. Layering traditional Appalachian songs with family truths, pre-Christian mythology, brutal comedy, and rituals inherited and invented, Will You Miss Me? pushes audiences to examine the stories we tell ourselves about who we are and to grieve the selves that have been forgotten.
