About this show

Big Art Group TAKES OVER Abrons Art Center in NYC to celebrate their 10th Anniversary. The Sleep mixes early cinema techniques, magic lantern, concept album and Big Art Group's Real Time Film technique into a live see-though movie adapted from M. P. Shiel's 1901 story, "The Purple Cloud," in which a lone explorer races to the North Pole while a poison purple cloud covers the earth. His subsequent return to the remnants of civilization drives him into a crisis of being, in a classic "last man" adventure that eerily presages catastrophic climate change. Live music by Theo Kogan, Sean Pierce, and Jemma Nelson. The evening continues with Big Art Group's sneak peek of Flesh Tone in the Abrons Playhouse at 8:30pm. Buying a Big Art Group TAKE OVER package ($25) reduces admission to both The Sleep and Flesh Tone. The Big Art Group TAKE OVER VIP package ($100) covers admission to both shows on opening night (April 15), plus a Big Art Group gift bag, an invitation to the after-performance toast with the company, and free admission to the after party at The Delancey.
