About Red Cloud Rising:
Created by Gyda Arber
Technical Wizardry by Aaron Baker

NOTE: Performed off-site in lower Manhattan. A cell phone is required.

“An innovative, genre-defying entertainment . . . Call it an alternate-reality game played in primary reality. Call it avant-garde performance art. Call it whatever you want. I just call it brilliant.”—New York Times

Approximately 2–3 hours (run time depends on your group's speed)
In small groups every Saturday and Sunday afternoon
Advance tickets required. 
The show is a co-production between The Fifth Wall and The Brick Theater
