"Interdisciplinary collaboration in Seattle is at an all-time high. Case in point: "Trapped," a slick, rousing short film that combines the talents of choreographer Alicia Mullikin, musician Amos Miller and director Ryan Hills. In the dynamic, three-minute clip, Mullikin and her dance partners from the Au Collective—Cheryl Delostrinos, Samuel Picart and Fausto Rivera Contreras—brandish their skills and their bodies in an assertive statement of identity. Hills' camera follows the four dancers—two male, two female, two Mexican-American, two Filipino-American—in constant motion, stunting and strutting through the raw basement space below the old Value Village on Capitol Hill. Miller's "Trapped," taken from his album Super Square (our Album of the Month from May 2015) soundtracks with buzzy with didgeridoo and thumping with bass." --- JONATHAN ZWICKEL, City Arts Magazine
