Hideaway, founded by Lyndsay Magid and Josh Aviner, will debut its first show, Slumber, at Brooklyn’s House of Yes in October. The gritty new show follows a girl squad, made up of international circus performers and dancers, on the last night of their lives.
The audience will be prompted to decide who lives and who dies. Aviner directs, and MTV Video Music Award nominees Keone and Mari Madrid, who have worked with Justin Bieber, Mark Ronson and more, choreograph. Performances will run October 6-November 6.
“Slumber is like nothing you've seen before,” commented producer Magid in a press statement. “It combines theatrical storytelling with killer dance and jaw dropping circus in an original, exciting, and even scary way. Hideaway is thrilled to be collaborating with Keone, Mari and the team at House of Yes to bring this one of a kind event to New York, just in time for Halloween.”
The cast of Slumber will feature Laurie Hagen (Vegas Nocturne, Most Innovative Award at Burlesque Hall of Fame), Olga Karmansky (Pippin, US Champion and two-time Pan American Champion in Rhythmic Gymnastics), Anya Sapozhnikova (House of Yes founder), Joren Dawson (Traces, Club Swizzle), Melissa Aguerre, Lee Hubilla, Bokyung Park and Lisa Sainvil.
The production will feature the music of Icona Pop, Halsey, Animal Collective, Selena Gomez, Birdy and more.
Hideaway is a Brooklyn-based circus and theatrical production company creating live and virtual experiences. Located in Bushwick, Brooklyn, the House of Yes is a 7,000 square-foot venue that is used for theatre, performance art, film screenings and more.
