A girl born of stone and born to rock, STONE BABY is a mythological origin story that explores unbridled liberation through one’s journey into rock and roll. Blurring the intersection of theater and live music by challenging the boundaries of each, this limited engagement event presents itself as a live rock show with story-driven flair. STONE BABY is an energetic, fast, loud, blood-pumping, live performance experience blending spoken word and rock music.
In early 2020, Kiss the Tiger experimented with a live music show that included storytelling and spoken word—a mythic rock and roll origin story that used a lot of KTT’s music from past and yet-to-be-released albums. Meghan Kreidler and Michael Anderson held a virtual performance in a Zoom music event in the height of the pandemic. During that same time, Trademark was actively looking for artists to launch its Commissioning platform. Artistic Director Tyler Michaels King met with Meghan to spitball ideas to collaborate on. “Meghan shared that she’d already been working on a rock and roll, story-telling mash up idea with Michael. It felt like a project very up our alley. Something new, fresh, and innovative,” says Michaels King. Trademark then met with Kiss the Tiger and discussed what a collaboration and full presentation could look like. After initial discussions, the band moved forward creating this musical epic with Trademark Theater in a producing role.
“At Trademark, we’re all about expanding the boundaries of what theater can do,” states Associate Artistic Director Tyler Mills. “Kiss the Tiger is the perfect band to get up on stage and break the rules on what a live performance is supposed to be. This show is unlike anything we’ve worked on or seen before.”
