Sleep No More Announces Week-Long Carnival des Corbeaux Halloween Celebration
By Adam Hetrick
The interactive Off-Broadway event Sleep No More has announced an upcoming celebration of Halloween that will begin Oct. 26 at the McKittrick Hotel.
The Halloween festival, titled Carnival des Corbeaux, is a six-night series of themed events. Each evening has its own costume theme, and Sleep No More guests are asked to strictly adhere. Patrons who do not arrive in costume will not be admitted, according to representatives.
A special party follows each evening performance of Sleep No More. Individuals who do not wish to attend Sleep No More, but would like to celebrate with Carnival des Corbeaux, may purchase separate party-only tickets.
The line-up follows:
Oct. 26: Le Charmeur de Serpent
Oct. 27: La Contorsionniste
Oct. 28: La Femme a Barbe
Oct. 29: La Clairvoyante
Oct. 30: Les Sœurs Siamoises
Oct. 31: Le Sorcier
Punchdrunk artistic director Felix Barrett directed and designed the production, which is loosely based on Shakespeare's Macbeth. Sleep No More is presented at a redesigned commercial space located at 530 West 27th Street that formerly served as a Chelsea nightclub. The production opened to critical acclaim April 13, 2011.
Sleep No More takes a non-linear approach to its storytelling, allowing theatregoers to freely explore the dark environment, where scenes, tableaux and scenarios play out, conjuring the world and themes of Shakespeare's bloody tale. Audience members don masks and must be silent during the experience. Participants are encouraged to open drawers, pull back curtains, read private notes and journals as they navigate the shadowy, music-filled world.
The production has co-direction and choreography by Maxin Doyle and sound design by Stephen Dobbie. Design associates are Beatrice Minns and Livi Vaughan.
The New York debut of Sleep No More is presented by Emursive's Randy Weiner (The Donkey Show), Arthur Karpati and Jonathan Hochwald, in association with Rebecca Gold Productions.
