The Paramount Studio Lot was decorated with a custom set-build to resemble New York in 1896 - the period of The Alienist. On set, over 50 actors, musicians and performers created a fully immersive environment playing everything from period policemen to paper boys. ✦ A working recreation of Delmonico’s Restaurant (the first restaurant to open in New York City) served food and entertained guests. ✦ A vaudeville stage gave host to performers from jugglers, to acrobats. Little Cinema produced and performed a 15 minute audiovisual art piece using content from The Alienist to end the party with a bang.
Performers from Martha Graham Dance company and Cirque Du Soleil performed alongside musicians and the screen, in a piece that played with the show’s themes of identity and innocence. ✦ Luke Evans, who stars in The Alienist performed in the piece live on stage, reading poetry in a call and response with the screen.
