Civilians to work on ‘Brooklyn’

Off Broadway troupe sets new show

Off Broadway docu-theater troupe the Civilians will begin work this fall on “Brooklyn at Eye Level,” a new show about the gentrification of the New York City borough.

Piece will focus on the Atlantic Yards development and its effect on surrounding neighborhoods.

In late October a team of creatives, topped by Civilians a.d. Steven Cosson, will begin gathering material for the show by interviewing local residents, business owners, politicians and others. In addition, development labs will be held with scribe Lucy Thurber (“Scarcity”), Brooklyn dance troupe Urban Bush Women and composer Michael Friedman.

In recent years the Civilians have developed a rep for research-based theater outings, with shows including “Gone Missing,” “Paris Commune” and “This Beautiful City,” now playing in L.A. ahead of a spring run at Off Broadway’s Vineyard Theater.
